1984 318i, 5 spd manual

Nearing my house, I noticed all of a sudden that it was harder than usual to shift from 1st to 2nd gear. I force it in and it seems to have worked. Shifting resumed to almost normal, with just a bit more difficulty shifting into the other gears.

I park (on reverse) and turn off the car. I try mock-shifting into all of the gears with no problem.

I start the car and shift to 1st. I get a loud grinding noise and can't shift to any of the other gears. I turn off the car.

I place my car into 1st and turn on the engine (with my foot on the clutch). It's ok there but I can't shift to any other gears as they seem to be blocked.

Does anyone have any idea what might be happening? What could be causing this? Thanks y'all in advance!

How many miles on the clutch? Check the slave cylinder and the clutch master for leaks. Very easy fix, just make sure you bleed the system completely.
