Injury...I think

so i am coming up to 2 years running and never been injured, sure had a couple of aches and pains that a normal rest day cured.  

But since the marathon my left knee hasn't felt that great, but when walking and and running it feels fine.  Just if i drive for more then half an hour it starts to hurt on the knee cap and also i will wake up at 3am  with it hurting alot if i move it about a bit then it will stop.   I also just noticed that i have a bruise on the inside of my let next to my knee. 

I have been pretty relaxed just one 10km and 3 x 5km runs since Brighton so i have hardly been over doing it! 

 whats wrong with me? do i need to rest? do i need to amputate my leg? or should i just carry on running hope it disappearing.   I have been pretty relaxed just one 10km and 3 5km runs since Brighton so i have hardly been over doing it!

  • I think I'd be getting advice from a physio. Sometimes it's best not to guess with these things, you don't want to cut your running career short. Hope you get it sorted, injuries are a nightmare! X

  • Certainly rest initially to see if the problem eases  and get better, having been out with a knee problem I would err on the side of caution rather than risk a more prolonged outage ... There could be many reasons for the problem, seeking advise from  a doc or sports physio wouldn't hurt.

    Hope rest does the trick ☺

  • Before you get your saw out to amputate your leg go and see a physio... ( just in case you dont need to) or a sports osteopath which I think is better....

  • you mean these things don't heal by themselves?   We have an osteopath school in the town they might do cheap rates. 

    I still sure it be fine in a few days.
