I have been having tremendous pain in my knee cap for a week
hi i have been having tremendous pain in my knee cap. it started about a week and a half ago after i ran on the treadmill. and it keeps shooting pain down my leg and it hurts to run. i have tried icing it and nothing helps.
Hi.. You must have injured your knee.. It needs adequate rest to heal.. Exertion will only make it worse.. An examination by a doctor and imaging test will help in analysing the seriousness of the injury.. Hence get to an orthopedician.. Over the counter analgesics (ibuprofen) may help in pain relief too...
