About two weeks ago, the pain started; it hurts after heavy squats; the heavier I go, the more it hurts. Last week it really hurt, so I made that a light session. This week I went heavy, but didn't push it and it didn't hurt too bad.
I'm hoping in two weeks the pain/injury/whatever will subside.
Description: After heavy set, the pain hurts under my knee cap. It does not hurt to squat. The pain comes after the set is complete, about a minute later and so on. Last week it was a throbbing pain that got worse (throbbed more) after each set. This week the pain was not as bad. However, I've been taking Aleve (anti-inflammatory) about once or twice a day for almost two weeks.
Aggravating activities: Running can aggravate the pain. Leg extensions do not aggravate, and sometimes decrease/hide the pain (I don't know why).
Conclusion: This week, my knee really hasn't been hurting as bad, not like last week. The idea was to take it light next week, then the week after go heavy.
Thanks for the replies. Based on common sense and the replies, I probably should go see someone. Based on what I just wrote, what do you guys think (if it's even wise say something based on the above)? The pain is getting better by the week. Of course, that could just be the naproxen and ibuprofen I've been taking constantly.
The question is who? I haven't been to a doctor in ages. I don't even know how to schedule an appointment. Would a college university doctor's office or something like that work? Does the person have to be sports affiliated?
Anyway, thanks for the replies.
