Please proceed with your query
I get pain in front of my left knee while runnin
this doesn't happens while walking / bending / climbng stairs
Since when do you have this issue?
I play Tennis overthe weekends and seems to have got this pain from there
it's more than 3 weeks now
Have you had similar pain before the last 3 weeks?
and it only happens while RUNNING
no..not before that
it seems when i started playing with new shoes...
no, there was no injury
but now if i play with any other pair of shoes, the pain occur
Do you mean this pain (pain while running)occurs only with a particular shoes?
i thought that thepain would go away with time...but it still occurs while running nd only in left knee
the pain occurs with any shoes / slippers
i thought that it started when i changed shoes....but it could be due to something else
Let me brief you.
You seem to be developing pain when the joint is under severe stress.\
i understand ligaments...but what is meniscus
At this point of time based on the history, I can only predict the possibility.
Menisci is one of the knee supportive tissue. It cushions the knee joint.
A detailed clinical examination can confirm/rule out this possibility.
You may have developed unnoticed injury which may have aggravated over the period of 3 weeks.
So consult an orthopedician and if needed, the doctor can order for scans and plan the treatment.
Hope it is clear.
Do you have any questions?
in the meantime i consult a ortho....would you like to advise any other treatment
The more you rest the joint the faster it heals.
Therefore my only suggestion at this point is avoid running and strenuous physical exercise such as climbing stairs.
Since you are asymptomatic at rest, I don't think you need any other treatment.
But if you wish to be more cautious,
you can use knee supports using knee caps or splints.
You can get these supports personalised to your size at the nearest pharmacy stores.
Have you followed?
great..thanks for the advise
I will try knee support ptions and see if that works
The supports are for pain relief. It doesn't help us identify the cause.
You should consider visiting the surgeon if it persists.
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now.
Thanks again...have a nice day
