Sorry to post another post about knee pain but I’m looking to see if anyone has had a similar experience and what they did about it.
A couple of years ago I used to run and could comfortably do so for around 30 minutes (I was also attending a gym at the time and doing weights).
I let myself get out of shape and 7 months ago had a baby. To try and get myself fitter and shed some pounds I started c25k. The first week went well and I had no problems.
I left a rest day and then went for a brisk 20 minute walk. The next morning I noticed my knees were a bit achey but not painful. I left another rest day and the started week 2. I noticed as soon as I started the running sections that my knees felt tender so I took it steady and made it round. Once home my knees just got more and more painful. It’s now over a week and I’m still in a lot of pain (to the point it has woken me up some nights). I’ve been prescribed co-codamol which I’ve taken alongside ibuprofen and ibuprofen gel but it only alleviates the pain slightly and not for long. I tried to see an osteopath or chiropractor but couldn’t get an appointment so tried an Amatsu therapist instead which offered some relief for a short while but now I’m back to square one. I’ve also been sent for an X-ray on both my knees by my GP but won’t get the results for around 10 days!
Sorry to ramble on but I’m really at my wits end and am desperate to get this sorted!
Thanks in advance for any advice/tips.
