Can't find whats wrong with my knee!
After looking through this site & others I can’t seem to find exactly whats wrong with my knee!
The pain is on the medial side of the patella and around the edge of the patella.
I can squat ok butgetting down the stairs & running is a nightmare.
The pain came about 2 weeks ago at the end of a long run.
Also the pain only usually hurts within a certain angle as it doesn’t hurt when my legs fully straight or fully bent (as in pulling my heel to my bum).
It hurts mostly when walking or running and hurts as it becomes the trailing leg and I bend the knee to return it to the front. Kicking my heels to my bum also hurts alot.
Like I said, squatting and putting weight on the leg doesn’t hurt neither does pulling or twisting the knee hurt in any way.
I’m thinking of some sort of petello-femoral pain and I’ve not run for 2 weeks now concentrating on stretching and strengthening the VMO muscles incase of a muscle imbalance and the pain has gone away but I can feel it as a niggle if I do try and do a few heel-bum kicks.
I’ve always been active and never had any problems with my knee before. I stretch and warm up/down before/after exercise and a neutral runner.
It kept me out of last weekends Sheffield 1/2 marathon which was very frustrating, any ideas?
