    Knee Pain Type?
    jszaradowski posted:
    Wondering if someone can tell me what type of knee pain I have and what I should do?

    A couple of years ago, while working at a local mcdonald's I sat down for lunch after work and had severe pain in right knee if I straightened leg. I didn't see a doctor for this, just iced it every night I went to bed and wore a knee brace for a week.

    now when I run usually not more than 5.0 speed on treadmill at gym without the brace I get knee pain.

    last week I ran 1/2 mile one day, 1/2 mile another day with 2 mile on bike, and another day 2 miles on bike, and have knee pain since Friday. was sitting in recliner at home watching tv and playing on our tablet and was feeling moderate pain in right knee

    What is this? What should I do for this-Doctor, Stretching/Exercises? Any advice would be appreciated.

    What if I do nothing and just continue to use brace. the insurance I have right now is Medicaid from Illinois.
