Unsure if muscle or joint related, doctor just says rest.
I woke up the Wednesday just gone with a sharp pain in the top / through my knee as I bend it, especially coming down the stairs, but not as bad going up.
The pain came on all of a sudden, but I had not played any sport since the Friday before (5 days before it occured).
When prodding around it hurts more on the upper edge of the patella, but slightly more to the left of the top.
If I sit for a prolonged period it aches and gets uncomfortable, I feel the ache (throbbing) from the left through my kneecap.
When going from a flexed knee (bent) to extended (straight) the pain shoots from top left over to top right and through the kneecap, but not underneath. Exactly *inside*.
After a visit to the doctors Friday just gone, 2 days after the pain onset, he told me to rest for up to 3 months for it to fully recover. Well and truly fobbed off i'm sure!
Thanks for any help in advance, really worried as it hasn't wore off and I can't rest much as I have to drive a round tip of 1h 50m and sit in lectures all day.
Bump, require help please! Frustrating injury.
