Before I go further, I do know that this isn't a medical site, but I do wonder whether any of you have gone through something similar.
A couple of weeks ago, I came on here because my lower leg was bothering me. Fortunately that turned out to be nothing, but now I have something that is more worrying.
I was fine last night, but while I was in bed, I think I did something to my knee. I stretched or moved it in the wrong way, because I felt a twinge of discomfort in my right knee. It's actually "behind" the inside of my right knee, in the area where I think my ligaments are.
I got up to walk this morning, and it was uncomfortable to stand and put weight on that knee. Not painful exactly, but uncomfortable. When I flex my knee, I feel discomfort. I am not limping and can walk, but it sometimes feels like I shouldn't be putting my weight on that knee for too long. It doesn't hurt at all if I'm just sitting down. It's when I flex my knee and when I'm walking (specifically, putting my right leg forward and then putting weight on that right leg).
Any thoughts? I'm leaving for Italy next week and will be doing a lot of walking there, so I don't want to make things worse by going back to my exercise plan. On the other hand, my diet will go down the drain if I skip exercise for more than a day or two. I'm already dreaming of brisket and tacos...
