Hi i am really struggling with the pain in my knee right now. I have not run since last Tuesday and miss it so much but i am scared to do to the pain in my knee. Do i take a chance or carrying on resting it. I have constant pain when walking, not unbearable but always there. I am using a tubigrip for support and ibuprofen gel as i don't really want to rely on taking painkiller. Don't know what to do. If i go to the gp he will probably tell me to take painkillers and rest it. Any advise would be most welcome. Feel really tearful as concerned this will not go and i will be left with a problem, not so young now at nearly 62 and i know it takes longer for things to heal.
