Simple Inflammation ? Have you tried aspirin
Yeah taken painkillers/icepack. Not done anything to injure it so swelling/redness/heat seems like an infection or something...
Cannae be hooped dealing with docs if it can be avoided.
For me I couldn't walk down stairs, when I had bursitis above knee cap - saw physio.
Hmm. By the time you get to see an NHS physio here your leg will have either healed itself or fallen off. Sounds the same as what's going on with mine anyway... fml.
ah well, another day sitting like a potato with frozen pea dressing.
You could pay to see a physio but need the inflammation to reduce
to go with the PEAS?
I’ve recently (last three months) developed knee pain in my right knee, it hurts when at 90 degrees after a short period of sitting on a chair, it hurts when cycling, been using the same bicycle for the last 5 years and not changed the position at all. I would be surprised if it was this. Sometimes the knee feels weak and on occasions when walking up stairs it can feel like there’s no power in it.
I recently have been getting a sudden shooting pain on the underside of the outside of my right foot, seems to happen at random times.
I also have a varicose vein in my right leg that runs over my knee cap, wondering if it could be this.
Any thoughts other than my right leg is probably fucked, I’m even that old :(
Got a stinging sensation just below and in front of kneecap - any thoughts? Haven’t cycled or run for ages and kept the same gym routine as during the last 3 months so no sure what could’ve caused it
That simple? Googled it last night and it just seemed a bit random to pick it up now. No more knee-bendy stuff at the gym for me then
Chondromalacia Patella Sounds quite similar to my knee pain too 🤷🏻♂️
Its a. Classic overload injury . Cranking the big ring trying to get fit quick . I would get some arnica gel in the January sales and rub it on just below the knee cap in the soft part.
Is it worth seeing a doctor or trying arnica gel or ibugel first?
Personally I would visit my GP for medical advice.
