Yesterday i was like the utility bike demigod. I worked for about seven hours messengering, then I went to a Critical Mass — where I was the "leader." But now my knees hurt like this annoying ache and the night before it was like a deep itching in my knees. It's like I pulled a muscle, except I know my knees don't have muscles. It's the bit on top of the knee cap when it joins with the thigh. So is this really bad? I know I can't get a diagnosis and prognosis over the net, but for those of you who've had this problem, what do you suggest?
Stay off my bike for a bit? That would be bad, because then I couldn't work and I'd be tethered to TheBus. Ibproufen (sp?)? Deep stretching?
I think my bike is properly adjusted, but I guess not. I'll take it into my LBS today to see.
Thanks presumptiously for all your help.
