Title: New knee problem.
Post by: ghochs on February 26, 2004, 06:09:30 PM
Hello all, I have had a lot of knee problems, but this is a new one.  I had arthroscopic surgery on my left knee about 15 years ago for osteoarthritis and it has been my good knee ever since then.  But last week I was windsurfing and apparently something happenned.  I noticed a little stiffness that evening but that night the pain was so bad that I had difficulty sleeping.  The slightest movement in any direction caused pain, including and especially attempting to lift my leg while lying on my side.  I had resigned myself to going to the doctor, but by the end of the day it was much better, and the next day there were no symptoms at all, save for a little soreness in the back.  But, I ride bicycles a lot and now it is stiff after a long or intense ride,  once again there is just a little soreness in the back, just inside of the hamstring tendon, and a little swelling in the back as well, I just noticed.
