MRI on Thurs..(For What its worth)..

Guntooticon 
About a month ago My left heel caught a step and i took a semi fall.. I got up and walked it off.. I sort of hyper extended my left leg.. The Next day the back of my knee was sore.. So I self medicated with 800mg of Ibuprofen 3x...

After a few days the pain went away..  then I would squat down and it would be hard to get back up with some discomfort.. Back on the Ibuprofen and the pain would go away..

and the cycle would continue..
 
My friend from work runs the Physician Assistant program for a Local University.. I mentioned the symptoms to her and she said get it checked out. So Last Fri I went in to OIP Walk In for an eval.. X rays were taken then I met with a PA who scheduled an MRI..(Saying you have been dealing with this for a Month so lets have a look see) I told her the pain is Minimal but if I try and do a standing leg curl it feels as though i have 40 pounds attached to my left leg..   There is some discomfort in the back if my knee..Sort of suspended in the middle..

She chuckled and said ask me any question except "What is wrong""  She said maybe a meniscus.. or some sort of sack in the area.. Not really sure about the latter.... Smiley43 Smiley43 Chuckle

Good that you are getting it checked.

Welcome to middle age.
Things are just downhill from here.


If you end up at physical therapy, ask for some pages of exercises you can do at home.
Good luck.

When its all said and done my friend.. moderation or pacing yourself or as I like to call it, Self indulgence with a cost.. Just remember if you keep trying to look at your ass, your only going to walking in a circle.

Yup. Sucks getting old.

Do what you have to do though. Had a similar problem coming out of the MC but put off talking to the docs about it. Ended up having surgery about 6 months after when the knee cut out completely on me and I couldn't walk. Not the first or the last on that knee and my doc tells me next time it's a replacement not a patch job thanks to me ignoring problems when I was younger.
