Recurrent Knee Pain
jszaradowski posted:
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?

Hi jszaradowski and thanks for posting!

I think that seeing your doctor (who will most likely refer you to a specialist if need be) is your best course of action, as finding out exactly what is going on will keep you from injuring your knee further and get you back on your feet.

It looks like you have already applied the RICE method -- rest, ice, compression, elevation -- but there are more treatment options found in 11 Knee Pain Dos and Dont's .

I also encourage you to look around our Knee Pain Health Center where you might find some more helpful information.

I hope this helps!
