The pain i was experiencing felt like it was underneath the knee cap
, so i assumed it was runners knee
and just got a knee
brace. After about two or three weeks of the pain not getting better, I decided to take a break from running, which inevitably led to the pain subsiding.
Currently, I haven't run in about 3 weeks and I feel absolutely no pain walking around. I can do squats, stationary bike, and elliptical without any knee pain.
