I have been addicted to riding a road bike for 4 or 5 years now. I normally ride 3 to 5 times per week, between 15 and 25 miles per ride. About 6 months ago i started to feel a pain in the very center of my knee cap just under the skin. So i took it easy for a month or so and it seemed to go away for the most part.
Recently i havent been able to ride as much, maybe once a week. 2 days ago, after not riding for a week, i started feeling an excruciating pain in my left knee cap. Just under the skin where the indention is.
Has anybody ever felt this before?
Does anybody know what causes it?
I am afraid to get back on my bike and ride for fear of making it worse.
Any advise or experiances would be greatly appreciated.
