Hi all,
I'm 37 and have had no previous problems with my knees other than being a bit stiff/sore in winter (but nothing unbearable).
Anyhow I lifted a very heavy stone aprox 3 months ago and about 5 days later started to get knee pain.
The pain feels like it is in 3 places, directly under my knee cap at the front of my knee, on the inside of my knee and at the back of my knee. It can still function without much pain (although is sore enough if I have been sitting for a while until I have walked around a bit) but the thing that consistently hurts is if I sit in an 'indian style' position ie with my legs crossed and my feet under my backside. I know this is not a good way to sit, but that is not the point really. The point is I can do this with my left leg and cannot do it completely with my right leg without immense pain.
i have so far had 5/6 sessions with an osteopath with no joy and i am now on my 5th session with a chirpractor with little joy also!
I would like to know if this problem is similar to anybody elses and if they tried any thing else that worked as I am not sure how to trouble shoot this one!:confused:
Thanks in advance. vpg

  • Just curious if you've gotten a good diagnosis for your knee problems. I have similar symptoms that came on after just walking and using the elliptical. Mine is in both knees and the Ortho I'm seeing believes it is inflamed plica tissue. I have not yet had an MRI. I would like to know if you got a similar or different diagnosis. Thanks.

  • I would suggest looking up patellofemoral pain syndrome. Just type it into a simple search engine such as google and you get many pages with info regarding this. I experience the same pain you've described and this is what I have. I was diagnosed with this at age 11 and was told it was just puberty, it would go away. 9 years later, I still experience the problem.
