I'm hoping you can help me! I
I've run for years and years, but in January my right knee suddenly caused me a hell of a lot of pain. It's in the back, in the middle of my knee. It only happens when I run; I can walk and walk with no pain whatsoever. Afterwards, it hurts more walking downstairs - I'm not sure if this is relevant to what it could be.
I used to run 2-3 miles, 3-4 times a week.
I run on roads in spring/summer and on my treadmill in winter, and it was on my treadmill when this happened. I have a desk job, so I ensure I do at least 10mins warm up consisting of knee & calve stretches, and also do sone throughout the day at wor.
I went to the docs in Jan who said to rest it, but it's still no better. I do pilates too, which I've continued doing, that's caused me no harm whatsoever- no pain arrises. I went running for the first time yesterday & the pain came on very quickly after around 10mins, so I had to walk for most of the route. Then I tried to walk down a hill hours later in the day, and the pain shot from just behind my knee to all down my leg, so I had to limp.
I've started using promax to try to help my muscles after pilates too.
Could any one shed any light on this please? It's so frustrating now it's sunny weather not to be able to run!! Many thanks in advance
