think ive got the start of runners knee- stiff and aching pain just below which increases to a very sharp pain if i bend my knee too far. ran 3 miles yesterday after a few days rest and it just started aching a bit. have read that this can progress to the point you have to stop running if allowed to get worse. a few questions- should i consult gp now to get a proper diagnosis? if not, should i wear a support or not- the type to keep your knee central? were can i find exercises or stretches to strengthen muscle groups? also read that leg extensions are a no no?? apparantly high heels can also make it worse??
