Many thoughts: You may have had the patella slip sideways or may have had a piece of cartilage get caught between the upper and lower leg bones.

30. Feel knee pop or snap around/from knee sometimes when turning foot out. MRI Dx w/chondromalacia. Told patellar maltrack. Recovery time? Any advice
Variable: The recovery time can vary from weeks to years. Chondromalacia implies long-term, often irreversible damage to the cartilage that covers the bone. However, symptoms can improve or even disappear. If your patella is not tracking properly, then I recommend a physical therapy program, patellar stabilizing brace and rest from activities that worsen symptoms. Also, update/improve athletic footwear. ...Read more
Left knee pain above knee cap for three years, comes and goes. Trouble keeping knee bent, feels best with leg straight. Feels unstable on stairs.

The symptoms include a grinding sensation and anterior knee pain with squatting, kneeling, and bending. This can be addressed with physical therapy. If you have any swelling or instability issues then i would recommend an evaluation. ...Read more

Get it checked ASAP.: Two possibilities come to mind. If you have a blood clot in your calf, your leg could look like that. Have it checked out immediately, because blood clots can go to the lungs.
