Just trying to educate myself before going to see my dr tomorrow…
I’ve been dealing with some knee pain since last Wed night…wondering if anyone might be able to wager a guess as to what it likely is? symptoms:*painful to extend the leg, or to do deep squatting*sharp, sometimes burning, sensation on what I assume is my tibia (medial side, right underneath knee area…probably not related to the knee pain)*knee often feels weak, or that it will give out*when standing, I get the sensation that the knee is filling up with “goo”…also feels like it is twisting on its own*pain ranges from mild to “oh my gosh, make it stop, please!!”…best feeling occurs after rest, ice and absolutely no use…worst when I try to walk around (parent of a preschooler, resting 24/7 is not an option) i’ve recently begun exercising on a treadmill (beginning early this month), so I am presuming that whatever this is is obviously a case of too much, too soon.
have done some reading online…wondering… does this sound like potentially a torn meniscus? stress fracture (referring to tibia pain)? tendinitis? What would be some classic symptoms to watch for? thank you for any info you can provide!
