Door problem

So I go out this morning to go to class. Go to open the door, pull the door lever and nothing. Try again, nothing. I take the door panel off later today and looks like everything is working fine, but the door will not open from the outside. its does form the inside. And when I try to open it from outside, the door handle sticks a lot if that would help anyone help me figure out whats wrong. I dont like getting into my car throught the passenger side,,, its a little embarrassing

hmm could be that the lever has some how dissconnected from handle or and this is pretty rare but sounds like you need a new door handle could have broken , i suggest giving a good once over again than if you cant see anything than maybe take it to your mechanic
