Knee pain

#1
i began running again 3 months ago. and sicne the last 2 or 3 weeks i began feeling mild left knee pain. now the pain is pretty mild. like just couple of minutes it happen sometimes when i run and most of the time happens when i'm not running. The pain that i feel happen when i squat after sleeping i can feel the pain and after taking few steps not more than 5 or 6 steps after the squating the pain fades completely. that's pretty much what i've been feeling.
i run 3 to 4 times a week for a distance of 2.5 miles each time. and most of the times my warming up period is like 10-15 mins. and i use professional running shoes.
any help, or guidance??
thanks alot.

Have you tried your GP?
Will you steady on with your crazy, off the wall suggestions? The OP should, of course, go to that well known and reliable source of medical information - random anonymous internet users on a military themed web site.

GP's indeed, it's not like they spend several years learning about medical matters or anything.

Frankly, I think a visit to his / her GP would be a wasted trip: Sounds like knee cancer to me.

There will be a virtual GP in the chat room tonight after 2000hrs. If anyone needs a diagnosis you'll need to make a YouTube clip to post.

As I can't manage a psychic consultation, and I can't see or examine your knees, check for over/under pronation, check leg length, gait, shoe wear pattern and many other things, then I'd suggest you go to someone who can.

You came here for advice, have been given advice, decided you don't like the advice, so if you won't take the previous advice, take this small nugget..


**** OFF YOU DRIBBLING FUCKTARD,

thank you for your co-operation in this matter.

A bit of advice from someone who had years of pain due to osteo-arthritis and rcently had both knees replaced. Stop running and see your GP.

Or if you don't want to go to your GP at least find a specialist running shop who can analyse your gait and tailor your running shoes to you. Then if there's no improvement go to your GP or pay to see a sports injury specialist with access to MRI scanning! This will hurt your wallet more than your knee though!!

Yes those clever people who can reassure people when nothing is wrong and refer when something is.
Hmmm we have differing opinions on GP's. My take is don't go to them unless you know what the outcome is going to be. I have seen (in the army) and heard of too many case of people being reassured that nothing is wrong when a lot has been.
