Posted this in Training and Nutrition, but other 50+r's may have more age relevant advice. Anyone have experience with tendinitis in the knee(s)? After finishing AOMM, seen to have some in my left knee. Two days off the bike after, did an easy spin on Thurs. nite, pain back Fri. AM, not quite as severe as Tues. AM. Sat, rode about 25mi, moderate pace, pain back again. Climbing stairs and ramps seen to be more painful than flat surfaces, but the forward walking motion causes a twinge. Have iced it ystd. & today, as well as used an electronic "stim". This does provide some relief. Anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Tylenol) don't seem to help much. Questions are:
1. If you have experience with this, what is generally the recovery time.
2. Any other suggestions as to self-treatment, would like to make the doctor the last choice.
