Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. hello,

    I've done 6 weeks of basic training now, and suffered with IBS for the last 3, its getting better, but still get the odd sharp pains and stiffness in my knee, any advice on how to get it sorted before it worsens.

  2. don't worry, the army will give you a fee upgrade to CP of the knees if you stay in for long enough! :lol:

    seriously though, go to see a physio and get your gait sorted - you are probaly running with splayed feet and your knees are over-compensating thus getting painfull
  3. Streching helped me when I had it and new trainers. Are you waering silver shadows because it might be worth getting some insoles.
  4. Not trying to be funny, but what has IBS got to do with a knee? or does IBS mean something else now too?
  5. If you have Irritable Bowel Syndrome and it goes as far as your knees there is something horribly wrong.

    Go see your doc now.
  6. Runners knee and IBS, theres dedication for you.
