I: I cannot diagnose your problem and am only addressing your knee symptoms in my response. From the sounds of it, your patella (knee cap) may be unstable. Subluxation is when the knee cap starts to move out of the socket and then pops back in. This would likely cause pain and a click. A dislocation is when the patella pops out of the socket altogether and stays there. If the patella is loose but doesn’t pop out of the socket, this can cause pain. Because your knee is likely unstable and you are having hip problems, I suggest that you see your doctor to have these symptoms evaluated. ...Read more

Why is it when I walk my ankles pop on there own. And my knee pops every time I bend it. I've never broken anything in my body.

Popping...: Popping is common and is not always associated with something being wrong. If you have no pain, discomfort or locking I wouldn't worry too much. Popping can be caused by fibrous bands of tissue sliding across the joint, cavitation from pressure changes in the joint and from cartilaginous structures in the joint. ...Read more

My knee has been hurting since saturday. I am experiencing knee pain and my knee pops when I bend it. Could it be a torn meniscus?

My knee has been hurting since saturday. I am experiencing knee pain and my knee pops when I bend it. Could it be a torn meniscus?

Possibly: However, most 25-year olds that have meniscal tears have a history of trauma- a sports injury, a twist, a fall, etc. Abnormal tracking of the kneecap, an articular cartilage problem (this type covers bone), an enlarged plica are possibilities. The location of popping can give you clues. Is it one side or behind the kneecap? If I can help, then join my care team at

Day after run lateral knee pops when I bend. Location is between pointy bone and kneecap. No pain during runs and do not have normal it band symptoms.

Hard to say: There are multiple potential causes. One of the more common disorders that you already mentioned is itb syndrome, but as you mentioned that may have been ruled out. One example of nother potential cause is plica syndrome, which is an abnormal fibrous band in the knee that can cause pain and popping as you describe.
