please halp. Been to the doctor had an MRI and sayd they saw nothing, been to a phsyio and they said it was 'just pain' and have me exersizes. been doing them 3 weeks and nothings improved. If i walk it gets to the point where i have to sit down because of the pain so i dont think these doctors know what the fuck is wrong with me.
Holy fuck, I've had the exact same thing for almost 2 years now. Fucked my knee up on a squat warmup somehow, couldn't walk for a week so went to physio. MRI's, x-rays etc found nothing and physio exercises made pain lessen slightly but not go away. Squatting always makes pain come back though.
For the last year or so pain's been on and off but I've just tried to deal with it. Stretch more and foam roll as much as possible, I reckon it helps a lot for the short term. Long term, I've been told to wait 4 years until I'm around 25 before it should go away. Shit sucks, yo
Not exactly sure what kind of pain I've been having, but I used to get pain once in a while from squatting. Then last week I got myself some knee sleeves (thin ones that don't give much aid, only warmth/compression), and it was fucking magic. If they keep working like this I'm never gonna squat without them ever again. Might be worth a try for you too.
I have this for over a year now, it comes and goes and is annoying as fuck
My plan to defeat it is to run 4iu HGH per day for a couple months until it fucks off for good
Im gonna help because ive been in a similar situation and i know how frustrating it is. Atleast you squat, so i feel like you deserve help.
Stretch, foamroll, stretch and foamroll some more. If your tendon is under constant tension because of tight quads it will take even longer to heal. So foamroll your ENTIRE THIGH, Especially the quads. Dont ignore your ass and IT band. Use a lacrosseball to really dig into your thighs. Do this 2-3 times a day.
Do these stretches:
And try to add in some direct hamstring work, such as leg curls or GHRs.
I havent had patellar tendinitis, but i have it in my quadridcep tendons attaching to my knee, and all of this has helped a lot.
Do all of this, and rest maybe a week ish and try to squat again, just to see how things feel. I wouldnt be surprised if it improved a lot.
You probably damaged something in your knee either by overtraining or because you did a movement wrong.
Then you probably started up again too soon.
They you probably ignored the pain for a few months until you couldn't walk.
Now you can't walk.
I don't think 2 weeks rest is going to cut it. If I were you, I'd ask my private practicioner to recommend a sports injury specialist.
If you can't afford that, I think you should take a long time, months, of from training and slowly work up to walking, running, jumping etc on the knee before you even consider weightlifting again.
happens to me too, had this knee pain for a few years, it used to be bad to the point where I couldn't walk a mile, and it would hurt when I was driving a car too.
Nothing on MRI, docs never found anything, they have no idea what it could be and I'm pretty sure one of them thought I was only pretending.
It's been a year since it last realy hurt me, I found that having my knee extended and slightly pushed to the outer helped a lot.
Other than that, just gotta deal with it
I've had tendonitis before. Latest casr I got on my wrist. When it flares up I take glucosamine to help with the inflammation. I really haven't found any way to deal with it properly. Just lived with it on my left wrist and elbow until it went away
Are you taking fish oil or an equivalent supplement? I got the same thing about six weeks ago and it wasn't healing, but I started taking flaxseed oil and DHA and it started getting better almost overnight.
I have been stretching rolling for 2 weeks already thanks for the info tho. how long should it take to take effect? never really thought my shit was tight. i feel like its an issue of the tendon healing
I'm going to the doctor next week. My knees are really sore every day and I'm having trouble back squatting. In addition to my knees, my lower abdomen and inner thighs are sore if I try to run and/or thrust my knee forward (I trained Muay Thai up until recently because of this):
