Hi, I am looking for some advice as I am not sure whether or not to go to the doctors about my knee. (sorry for the long story)
About a month ago when I got my PB on a Saturday park run my knee felt kinda funny while walking back to the car. It then continued on and off to not feel quite right for a while sometimes it was a sort of dull ache as I ran. However over the past few days the pain has been really bad, I have not ran this week as I can barely walk and I have been applying ice packs regularly and lying down when I am at home.
My knee sometimes gives out during the day which causes a lot of pain so I took painkillers and the walk back from school the past couple of days has been agonizing and I have even had to stop a couple of times. However it seems to be slightly better right now but it always feel betters when I am resting.
I tried to get an appointment at the doctors as soon as possible but the most recent they could give me was next Tuesday. They said if its an emergency I can call at 8:00 in the morning and get an appointment for 11:00. It somehow doesn't feel right calling it an emergency especially in the morning as it feels fine until the day progresses. What would you do?
Extra note: I looked it up online and I seem to have all the symptoms of PFPS.
