MRI time. I bet there's more wrong than just a torn meniscus. Either way, you're heading to the operating room.

well, the doctor was acting really sure its the meniscus. they said that surgery might not be needed but i bet they are gonna come out and be like after studying, you need surgery. uggg. the worst part is i can walk fine but have to use crutches :/

I have had a torn meniscus for 7 years. No problem riding boards, bikes or hiking... Coming down the mountain on a hike hurts later that night though.

yea, it doesn't heal on its own does it? im guessing the guys at ortho will opt for surgery since im only 14 and have a long time of knee use ahead of me.

Depending on the mechanism of injury, meniscus rarely happens on it's own, and if you were seeing a GP about this, chances are he hasn't done all his knee orthos and knee history since he/she was in school.
Did it swell? Where does it hurt? there's like 10 mire questions but just so you get the point
It's MRI time

i was at the er. it swelled a little and it hurt alot mostly inside the knee. then it popped back into place(they said the torn part was in the way of the joint) and it felt ok again

I'd get a second opinion. Most ER docs don't do that kind of stuff on a regular basis i would say, better to see someone who sees it almost every day.
I'd find a CCSP certified chiropractor, a DPT or orthopedist if you can.
Surgery probably isnt needed but rehab is needed for sure.
I dont know your mechanism of injury but i'd definitely get a second opinion cause you dont want it to be ACL etc.......
