I have a question in regards to a knee injury that arose after my Saturday morning run. I have been training for a local marathon and on approx. mile 2 of my workout I began having pain in my right knee( nothing excruciating, just a dull pain) I continued for maybe another 10 minutes and decided I should cease my run for the day. The pain and soreness is coming from the left side of my knee, almost wrapping towards the front area ( sorry hard to describe). It doesn't feel like anything from under the kneecap area. Anyway today is Wednesday and there is still a dull ache there and when I apply pressure to the knee (ie. stairs, curbs etc.)it hurts and I can barely use it. I have been taking some ibuprofin and have popped some Celebrex and while that is in effect it feels a bit better. I was planning on giving it till the end of the week to see if it gets any better at all? Has anyone had a similar injury to what I have described and what was it? How long to heal? Did it require surgery? Should I give it longer than a week to see if it gets better before seeking medical treatment? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
