Don't give up. I am just getting over ITB after not running for 17 months and the further I could run was just 2 - 5 mins before I got knee pain on the outside of my right knee.
Pain was only when running and walking downstairs and just sometimes walking. I could still swim, spin, cycle and do weights fine.
I have seen about 12 specialists in my quest to be 'fixed' and have had lots of treatement - massage, ultrasound, accupunture, two steriod injections, electro wave shock therpy, postural assessment, gait analysis, seen chiropractor, osteos, physios, MRI, XRay, local anaethstic injection and finally.......................... after seeing my 12th specialist he spotted that I have a leg descrepancy. So with lots of massage around my lower back, lots and lots of glut exercises everyday 3 x a dayI have now done 2 x 15 min runs and 1 x 20 mins run and absolutely no pain whatsoever on my knee. I have been seeing my physio for about 6 - 8 weeks and he has got me back running
