Knee pain when jogging running

Common Questions and Answers about Knee pain when jogging running


Avatar f tn I get unbelievable pain from my knee down to my ankles when I jog. After about 40 minutes that pain is some what tolerable and I can jog for 4-5 minutes straight. For the rest of my day my ankles are sore. Does anybody have any idea what this is?
Avatar f tn I have been running 3 miles a day fro 3x a week, until recently because i have been experiencing really aching pain in my knee and if i keep running it becomes really painful like i have torn something, and sometimes my knee gives way too, if i stop running and walk the pain wears off for a while, i have had an 6-8 week rest, but it still hurts when i try to bend my knee, it pulls really tight and hurts, haven`t tried running fully yet, sometimes the knee hurts really bad , it hurts in the back
Avatar f tn Yesterday, I went for a jog for the first time in last 2months. I had only started jogging for about 100metres when I felt this sharp pain in front of my knee around my knee cap area on both sides. I thought nothing of it and continued another hundred or two meters but the pain didn't go away. It is not very severe (about 4~5 on 1-10scale) but I'm worried because I have never had such pain before.
587778 tn?1261397118 In the last two months, I began having pain on the inside of my knee that is tender to the touch. Even when I palpate the bone it hurts. My doctor sent me for an X-ray and it reveal mild osteoarthritis.
Avatar m tn Your femur is your thigh bone. Sounds like a tendon or ligament issue with the knee. I would recommend NOT doing any jogging, running, etc. until you are seen by a physician and I would recommend doing that ASAP. Have you used ice and/or heat? Tried any anti-inflammatories, i.e. Motrin. How long the knee will take to recover I am not sure about that. It probably won't be less than month.
Avatar m tn also, i have no pain while walking, but experience instability while running, jogging or during any sudden activities. Thanks alot.
Avatar f tn Hi there my husband underwent partial knee replacement surgery 10yrs and then second knee 6years ago. his knees have been fine and he started gentle running again after many years of not being able to due to pain. 5years ago whilst jogging he experienced a near fatal anaphylactic shock and was later diagnosed with exercise induced anaphylaxis but only after eating wheat. All has been well for a number of years but then a couple of wks ago another problem occurred.
Avatar f tn However, yesterday when I was running, I suddenly started getting sharp stabbing pain only on the outside of my right knee. My knee is NOT swollen at all, I can easily bend my knee and pushing all over it causes no pain. It only stabs when I'm jogging on that leg. Today it was way worse. It's not bad when I walk, but it's over the top when I run. The hip/upper femur pain is constantly present, but worse when I sit.
Avatar f tn During the episode of pain if you use crutches then it is important not to do any weight bearing on the affected knee. You can apply ice packs when your knee is painful, after physical activity as this reduces your pain and inflammation. Resting from aggravating activities such as running and jogging allows time for recovery and healing. You should also practice stretching activities. You should consider physiotherapy to strengthen your quadriceps and hamstrings.
Avatar n tn Altered gait or abnormal walking pattern is typical with an ankle fusion. And of course, activities like jogging or running will never be the same if even possible. As to the knee replacement having issues also due to the ankle fusion, please talk to your surgeon. Misalignment would still be an issue and I certainly talk to your doctor about the risk of failure of the knee replacement.
Avatar f tn ve conditioned your body and maybe lost a little bit of weight, then work gradually into the jogging and instead of doing it for 20 minutes, do the walk/jog for 5 minutes to start, with the remaining 15 minutes alternating slow and brisk walking. When you can do this and be pain free, then increase the walk/jog to 10 minutes with the remaining 10 minutes with alternating slow/brisk walking. Then go to 15 minutes walk/jog with 5 minutes of slow/brisk walking, then on to 20 minutes of walk/jog.
Avatar n tn Have you tried proper running footwear? You need something that is going to protect you whilst you run.

378273 tn?1262097621 t gotten back to jogging (target when in sinus was 3 miles in 30 minutes, but have seen that drop to closer to 40 minutes). Well enough about me, to your question: A beta blocker should lower your blood pressure and lower your heart rate. This will not prevent you HR from going up to running speed. I have run, several years ago, when using a beta blocker (Toprol XL) to help keep me in sinus.
Avatar f tn Talk with your doctor, if you have been running it's usually safe to continue to do so since your body is used to it. My neighbor continued to run up to 20 miles a week until her 35th week, but she was running 40 miles a week before she got pregnant so it wasn't the same kind of stress on her body that it would have been for lazy me. :-) Even if you don't run now, you should be okay to run/jog some even into your third trimester so long as you ease into it and don't go crazy.
Avatar n tn Exactly 2 weeks ago, after jogging, two off-leash dogs playing tag slammed into the front of my R knee, and knocked me over. Swelling and pain started soon after, and got worse over the next few days. Particularly on the center, sides and above my knee. At first I alternated between hobbling around and using crutches, as well as R.I.C.E. but I have become more strict about staying off the bad leg, hoping soon I will be able to walk again.

Avatar n tn I'm 32weeks, I raced my little cousin from the end of the driveway to the door the other day, and it kinda hurt my stomach for a minute or two after. So I couldn't see running more than that.
Avatar f tn I can jump on both feet, walk around the house fine, but a fast stride or run is impossible. The pain is very sharp and feels like it is vaginal. The pain stops when I stop running.PLEASE help! Thanks.
773138 tn?1329946949 If you are feeling discomfort in these areas, you will want to take it carefully and definitely do more brisk walking and less jogging until the pain goes away completely. This pain can be caused and increased by the types of surfaces that you jog/walk on. Concrete is the worst. Asphalt is not so good either, but a bit more forgiving than concrete. Your best bet overall is a natural surface, preferably dirt or grassy areas.
Avatar m tn I was out running and the pain manifested at first at the back of my knee. It has variously been diagnosed as a knee sprain, torn meniscus, patella tendonitis. and we just don't know. Hopefully you'll get a more definitive diagnosis than I have. But you have to see the right professional to find out. You will probably be sent for X-rays and an MRI. Hope it works out.
