hmm, does it feel like a bruise? I get a pain under my knees if i have done a lot of running over the last couple of days, i mentioned it to a mate who does frequent half marathons and he told me its somthing to do with fluid around the joint, and over time builds up a solid bump under the knee.

Not a problem but can be a bit tender after a few hard runs, of course i am not a doctor, and i have not heard that from a doctor, but it put my mind to rest hearing it, it only hurts if i prod under my knee, so i just stopped prodding under my knee :)

hmm i can't spell for sh*t

Why are you doing lots of threads ref your aches and pains.Why not just write everything under one heading.You claim to be 22 years old , yet you had to walk during a 20min run. Then it was leg pains, 'is it shins splints?', then the ache was in your calf.Now you've got pains in your knee.
Personally I would have to say if you have all these problems at 22 before you even enter the Forces your best bet would be to stay away from strenuous exercise.

No worries PB :smile: So keeping it on track, you already have a thread running where you have stated you have problems with your legs, why not just throw this onto it. Although my original thought stands. If at 22 you are already having lower leg and knee problems, then a job where strenuous exercise is a given probably isn't the best course for you

I can only speak from my own experience but when I was in a similar boat to you and trying to get fit, my body hurt and ached like fcuk in all sorts of places.

After a while I realised it was just part of the process of getting used to regular exercise. That sorted my head out and the pains went away.

Just relax and keep at it. Set realistic targets and meet them and before you know it sub 10.30 times will come. Don't ignore trying to do good (for your own level) distances too. Also take breaks for a couple of days to recover if you really hurt.

I think that I might actually have got over my knee dramas (finally). Sort yourself out with a pair of decent trainers, and if your joints are stiff/creaky get some cod liver oil down you. Just say you're buying it for your dad or you'll get a look at the checkout along the lines of 'He looks well for a 60 year old.' :) If all else fails, chin up and jog on.

I too have knee problems due to lots of pressure on them over the years. Speak to a trainer or something they can give you certain exercise that can build it back up again.

It could also be your cartilidge or something, you should check it out with the doc first they should have more of an idea. You wont have much of an army career if your knee keeps playing up anyway.

Bilateral Chondromalacia Patella-Also explained to me as Knackered knees.
DO NOT join up if you have this condition now-or when you start to carry heavy weights your knees will eventually-in time- be totally fuucked and may even click-get a second opinion if you like. Yet the bottom line is CP needs rest not selection-your call.

Hello Walter, welcome back. Are you a doctor now as well as a PTSD specialist?

Clicking knees can be a problem if associated with pain, sometimes knees just click, there is no actual medical reason for it.
You can have problems with your legs if you run like a spaz, like over-pronating or supinating.
It could also be that you just need to work more.
If your that worried get down the docs.

Most Para's that I know, who spent a number of years jumping, have knee problems. I know I do. To many HHs&A landings! Good PLF? On a T-10? You got to be kidding!

So for a guy with RIGHT knee pain your internet diagnosis is bilateral (both sided) CP? Interesting. It is a condition that has an incidence of about 1 in every 10,000 people.
However an examination is needed to comfirm this unusual diagnosis which normally affects teenage girls.

Other possibilites include:
Common Patellofemoral syndrome
Patellar tendinopathy
Fat pad impingement
Recurrent patellar subluxation
Synovial plica
Pre-patellar bursitis
Quadriceps tendinopathy
Infrapatellar bursitis
Tenoperiostitis of upper tibia
Stress fracture of the patella
Osgood-Schlatter disease
Sinding-Larsen-Johansson syndrome

Less Common
Referred pain from the hip
Osteochondritis dissecans
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis
Perthes' disease
Tumor (especially in the young)

[shamelessly stolen from http://www.clinicalsportsmedicine.com/chapters/24a.htm]

In brief get yourself to your GP or a sports physio and get them to see you. The internet is not the place for diagnosis - sorry.

I have been having some knee greif and I went to my GP and she gave me some exercises which helped a little but not completely so I no have a physio referal for it next month.

One exercise you could try is: while sitting (watching TV is a good place to do this) extend the effected leg and write the alphabet in the air with your foot. It apparently works to strengthen the supporting muscles.. I dont know but it did help me a little.

Go see a doc. I was reluctant too because it might hurt my chances of getting in but then theres no point getting in just to be kicked out for having fked knees 6 months down the line is there?

My doc said it should affect my entry anyway providing it clears up completely.
