I have a constant nagging pain on the outside of my left knee, running down the outside of my knee cap. There is also some pain at the front/under the knee cap itself. It is not a sharp stabbing pain it`s just a niggling pain.Also my knee/knee cap sometimes give a load crack when I bend it. If I sit down and straighten my leg out and push downwards with my fingers each side of my knee cap I can feel it click or crack into place, sometimes really loud.
I have been running 3 years mainly 10k distance with the half marathon distances in between. I go to the gym twice a week for an hour and also some roadwork (not enough). From Jan this year I stepped up the distance as I entered the Edinburgh marathon in May but had only run to a distance of 18 miles before the Marathon. This is when I first felt the niggling pain in my Knee. I managed to finish the Marathon but with pain in my knee and also in my left foot (right at the top near where you tie the laces). I put the pain in my foot down to just running the Marathon but I`m now wondering if they are linked. I have had the same running shoes for 3 years now.
Any help anyone.
