Knee Pain from over-use?
Hi there everyone...
I have been having pain in my right knee for a couple of years now, it is located below the kneecap around that 'bump' on the top of the shin-bone.
For the past 9 years my right leg has been doing all the work when sitting, standing or walking up stairs or down them due to an injury to my left foot and ankle that is an ongoing issue, so I believe that the pain is from over-use, but I cannot find anything anywhere stating what kind of injury this could be or what could be the damaged part mechanically speaking. I looked into Osgood-Schlatter syndrome because that was the closest that I could find, but that is a condition of adolescents and at 39 that does not fit me at all, even though the symptoms are right on cue.
There are times that I am not able to walk at all due to other medical concerns and at that time my knee will calm down a bit bit the moment I start to move around again it gets just as bad as ever. I have tried ice, moist heat, TENS unit and gentle excercise (PT style) but nothing seems to work.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what this could be and any suggestions of things I might try?
