In the last 2 or 3 weeks, my knees have been KILLING me. Seriously. I can't even make a typical baseball catcher pose like the one to the right anymore. It's weird. I don't understand. I take great care of myself. I work out daily. I take a martial art. Heck, I even do yoga every Friday. Granted, I do sit at my desk for long bouts of time, and I sit in a car to commute twice a day. But that hasn't bugged my knees before.
I just can't figure it out. My knees don't "click" when I walk or work out, so I don't think I have floating cartilage or anything like that. But after I work out, and then go to my desk to work for awhile longer... I try to get out of my seat and can't. The pain is really intense right above my keecaps. When I try to massage them, it feel stuff moving underneath my fingers, like you'd feel a knot in someone's back when you give them a massage.
I do wonder if it has anything to do with me wearing my Oxford shoes that have a heel. It's not a real girly girl high heel, but it's got a chunky 2-inch heel on the shoe. For the next few days I'm going to wear my Kung Fu slippers to see i that makes any difference.
Ugh. All I know is that I'm hurtin' like hell. I may just have to spend the cash and go see a doctor about it... but I'd like to have some clue as to what might be the problem before I spend money to hear some guy in a white lab coat tell me not to lift any weights with my legs or try wearing different shoes.
Any thoughts out there?
