I know this isn't Webmd but wondering if anyone has any ideas or what's causing this. I didn't know where to post this so where else but my favorite section of the forum! lol. I did a 90 mile race two weekends ago and roughly 60 miles into the race one of my knees steady got worse. Mind you I've never had any knee pain or any type of injuries in my entire life. I still finished the race as I didn't feel like dropping out this far into it. Now two weeks later and being what I thought was completely healed. I decided to ride to school as I felt back to normal and no pains last weekend riding around.
Now fast forward to today. My commute to school is 40 miles round trip with no big climbs and only for about 2 miles is there any type of incline if you want to call it that. Rode to school and everything felt all hunky doorie once I got there. Though come time to ride home no more then 100 yards into the ride it started hurting like during the race. Enough for me to throw in the towel and call my wife and spare the remaining 15 miles or so. Not only does my original knee hurt but the ball of my other foot hurts now. I'm only 32 but feel and probably smell like I'm 92 with the bengay I'm lathering on.
Now I just switched to Speedplay from a Look style pedal and today was just on a standard platform pedal with no clips and some New Balance running shoes. My wife said she's setting up an appt with a chiropractor to see whats wrong. The pain is basically everything around my entire knee predomently the Lateral and Medial Collateral ligaments. I almost stopped at a department store to pick up one of those neoprene knee braces to see if that would help but didn't want to make it worse. Anyone had soemthing like this happen to them? It's pretty frustrating when the weather is perfect I've got multiple decent bikes to ride now and can't because of a bum knee or maybe pedals that don't like me.
