a little worried...
« on: January 19, 2005, 08:23:10 PM »
yesterday when i finished lifting and running i went down the stairs to the locker room. while going down the stairs something happen with my left knee. now there's some pain when going up and down stairs. not so much when i'm walking, just a minor clicking noise. which by the way i've had going on for some time now. which i've passed of as runner's knee. however it previuosly did not click all the time and i guess when i think about it before last night the clicking did'nt hurt, now there is a little pain associated with it. the clicking and pain are right at the joint on the outside of the knee. what should i do? can i still run and lift? if not how long should i take off? should i go to the doc or rest it for awhile? help i think i'm going nuts.

Hi hatter:

First - don't run on it for the moment or engage in any heavy-impact excercise - don't exacerbate it basically.

Second - Rest it for a couple of weeks - use any helpful elements of R.I.C.E if you need to - (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) - Rest being the primary one.

Third - see how it responds after resting it for a couple of weeks - if it's still symptomatic after a couple of weeks rest, then you need to see your GP or OS.

good luck and post back if have more questions etc.
