knee discomfort / 'popping' ligament on outside of leg

Hi Guys

My left knee has been giving me a bit of grief for a while now. It's not painful as such, it is just discomforting and unnerving as hell. What's worse it is preventing me from performing squats etc with 100% confidence so obviously my training is suffering as well.

I have mentioned it to a doctor and various people in the physio industry but all responses have been vague attempts to fob me off.

I took this quick video which should help demonstrate:

I also have issues such as:

  • walking downstairs (especially in mornings) my left knee tends to click LOUDLY
  • If I lie on my back and straighten and raise my leg, it will often be accompanied by a significant click in the kneecap area
  • sometimes when squatting i get knee crunching sounds etc
  • when squatting, once I reach about parallel the sensation can feel similar to a bone (or most probably ligament) popping out of place.

Does this sound familiar to anyone, and has anyone got any suggestions as to what course of action would be appropriate?

Thanks
