Over the next several months I gradually got better, but began to experience a dull stiffness and pressure in my knee cap
. Temporary relief would come from rubbing the knee cap
gently, primarily on the inside of the knee. I began running again in the summer (8 months post injury) and immediately noticed that I had some new pains associated with running. The head of the fibula bone at the knee would feel sharp pains, on and off, unexplainably.
