Hello, everyone this is my first post. I am a teenage girl and I have been diagnosed with chondromalacia that I am told to just deal with. I have been and it has been getting better. However, I have this pain on my medial side of my knee that started yesterday. I can't sit cross legged or get on my bed or even roll over in my bed without sever sharp pain. I also sometimes am awakened by my pain. When I walk I can feel the pain, and I don't even try to bear all my weight on my left lleg. My mom and dad do not believe me when I say I have actually done something to my knee. They believe that it is just the chondromalacia but I do not think so because this is not what I am used to.. Usually the pain is just an ache here and there. But this is sharp and only when I do certain movements and constant when I am walking. Any ideas???
