Re: Knee Pain On Outside of Knee
It may be your iliotibial (IT) band. This extends from your hip down to just below your knee. I had a problem with my IT band on my right knee after running a half marathon. The outer portion of my right knee hurt. My physical therapist gave me a foam roller to do exercises; I lay on my side and roll over it from my hip to my knee. It hurts to do this, but it seems to help loosen the muscle.
Google "iliotibial band syndrome" and see if these are the symptoms that you have. Whatever it is, I hope you feel better!
