    A good Sports Physio should be able to tell what the issues are :smile:
    If not, see a knee specialist and push for an MRI

    At least you’re getting it seen to, unlike the OP yet...

    Go and see a GP. It might not be anything that a physio can fix. I had a really painful wrist after going ten pin bowling. Then my elbow started hurting....then my shoulder, and finally my knees. I managed to convince myself that it was because I wasn't used to the riding position on my first road bike. After five months I caved in and went to my doctor and was referred to a specialist. Rheumatoid arthritis. Fortunately the two drugs I take have worked, and I'm fine now.

    For me the GP has to be the starting point. I’ve had stiffness down the whole of my left side from base of neck to ankle. Went to GP who referred me to a podiatrist as I expected. What surprised me was the podiatrist referred me on to a physio.

    The podiatrist solved my gait issues which fixed me up to the hip. The physio identified the neck muscles issue and fixed me down to the hip.

    I believed it was all connected to my fallen arch! Self diagnosis can be tricky.

    All on the NHS and inside four weeks though treatment is ongoing.

    Err, I'm a doctor (retired) although, admittedly, bones, joints, etc were not my specialty so the OP should see someone more appropriate.

    This does sound like a case of what I, in my early years working in A&E, used to describe as "Tommy Cooper syndrome"

    TC - Doc, it hurts when I do this.

    Doctor - Well. don't do it!

    I had pain like you described doing similar activities. Rotator Cuff injury. Not trying to diagnose, just saying that I had something similar. See a doc and get some physio.

    Well done

    What did the Dr diagnose?
     
  14. I'd just like to point out this isn't blokey behaviour at all. Finding a pain in a joint or muscle that is uncomfortable, but not debilitating and isn't the result of an acute injury (eg a fall), the correct behaviour would be as you have done. Waiting to see if it rights itself - as they mostly do - before bothering the doctor.

    Blokey behaviour - and this is a true story - is a friend mine who went to his GP with a nagging cough, and was referred to chest specialist. He didn't go for a year! and by the time he did, the (fortunately benign) tumour had grown so large that when they cracked his chest open, they found it was impinging on his spine and was inoperable.

    He's still alive, you'll be pleased to hear. They shrank it with radiotherapy, and for a long while he thought he couldn't have children. Luckily that proved wrong.

    Anyway, I'm also curious of the diagnosis and how the physio goes.

    Doc thinks it is an injury (from doing something I don't actually recall).
    Could have been anything... lifting a bike in the garage, falling off the bike (I have come off but there was never any pain).

    My wife (who has saved my from Smoking!) lost her mum a few years back to cancer so is on my case whenever there is an issue - however small.

    I will find out tomorrow, if the snow allows me to get to the physio.

    thanks
