I don't know but it sounds very painful. Hope it gets better soon.


I have strained my knee (according to my GP). It has been 3 weeks since I did it and I'm still in a fair amount of pain. Have made an appointment to see a physio next week. Much as I rate my GP - she is very good, I realise that she may not have the expertise to help me as much as a sports physio. I have had a recommendation from a friend and await the outcome. I would suggest you get someone to look at it if only to rule out anything serious!

Hope you are soon on the mend

Viki :-)


I have had knee and groin pain too. Decided last Monday after my run that I would rest it for a week and looked up exercises on google. There are loads with videos to show you what to do. They are helping. I do them every day for about 10 minutes. Three knee ones and four for the hip and groin. Couldn't hurt, well it does hurt, but you know what I mean. I will try another run on Monday and see how it goes, but think I will keep up the exercises for good as this must be my weak spot. Good luck.
