    I think that you really, really need to get a referral to an orthopedist.

    Pay attention on how you are pushing your med cart and avoid twisting your knees as you turn. I had a problem with my left knee when I was pushing a cart. An MRI showed nothing wrong. I haven't pushed a cart in a few years and my knee is just fine now. Strenghtening your quads may help and an ortho appt is a great suggestion. Good luck.
