Hi There Fellow Runners!
I need some advice but due to my lack of knowledge of the human anatomy I'm finding it difficult to even describe my symptoms!
I think its either a ligament or tendon at the back of my knee, possibly what links my hamstring with the inside of the knee? In a seating position, this tendon/ligament is towards the inside leg and almost makes a right angle triangle join between the upper & lower parts of my knee.
Well anyway, the problem started whilst training for a 1/2 marathon earlier in the year but was intermittent to begin with - I found knee supports helped and the discomfort would fade after the 1st km or so. I ran the 1/2 marathon fine and was ok for the 1st few weeks after. However the problem became more frequent and over the past 2 weeks it has now become constant every time I run.
Its not a painful sensation but its certainly uncomfortable and is more offputting than anything. The only way I can describe it is a clicking or twanging of this muscle. I went for a run last night and after 2km of constant twanging I had to stop - this morning I can feel it twanging when I walk!
Any ideas people? The thought of being unable to run, even for a few weeks depresses me so looking to pinpoint the problem and get treatment ASAP!
Thanks in advance!
