Wondering if someone can tell me what type of knee pain I have and what I should do?
A couple of years ago, while working at a local mcdonald's I sat down for lunch after work and had severe pain in right knee if I straightened leg. I didn't see a doctor for this, just iced it every night I went to bed and wore a knee brace for a week.
now when I run usually not more than 5.0 speed on treadmill at gym without the brace I get knee pain.
last week I ran 1/2 mile one day, 1/2 mile another day with 2 mile on bike, and another day 2 miles on bike, and have knee pain since Friday. was sitting in recliner at home watching tv and playing on our tablet and was feeling moderate pain in right knee
What is this? What should I do for this-Doctor, Stretching/Exercises? Any advice would be appreciated.
What if I do nothing and just continue to use brace. the insurance I have right now is Medicaid from Illinois.View Thread
What should I do for right elbow pain that I only get when working out my triceps? Sometimes I also get the pain when sweeping at work. Last Monday I worked out chest/ triceps,from 4:30-5:30. By 7pm felt a burning sensation inside right elbow.
What should I do? Should I get it checked out by a doctor? If I should get it looked at, What type of doctor should I see?
Currently have no insurance. What can happen if I do nothing?View Thread
Tonight while running 1 mile 4.5 speed I felt right knee pain the whole time I was running. I also was wearing my adjustable knee brace. After that did a 30 min. Circuit class and still felt knee oain. Came home showered and laid on couch watching tv and icing knee since 7:30. Still feeling pain in knee. Will ice knee while sleeping tonight. I usually get knee pain after 3-4days of running without knee brace.
What should I do, see doctor? PCP or orthopedic doctor? I have no insurance. What can happen if I do nothing in the long run?View Thread
