    My Right Knee.

    It's screwed I swear! :/ Okay it doesn't hurt when I'm walking or running so it might be okay. Although when I'm walking up stairs it makes a horrible noise. When I squat (even without weights) it hurts. Yesterday I tried to do lunges and I actually couldn't. It hurt so much and...
