Hi there. As the season here in South Western Ontario has gotten off to a roaring start, I find myself shelved for a week or so.
Over the past week I've had a pain develop in the back of my knee (left leg only). No swelling as such, but more of a lingering ache in the relaxed leg. When I try to do a hamstring curl (bend knee), I get a more pronounced pain primarily between to tendons in the back of the knee.
I plan on seeing my GP, but an not holding my breath on a diagnoses, "Yes there is something wrong here. Stay off of the bike til you feel better". The guy is a pure rocket scientist. Waiting for a appointment with a knee doc could take awhile (read MONTHS/SEASON).
Does this sound like a 'fit' issue? I've already have started to drop my saddle, do I look at KOP as well, or is this more for front knee pain? This was a fit set up that did me well for the little that I've ridden. The cleat position is fine.
The real question that I'm looking for (from experience), is this a muscle, tendon, or ligament injury?
