I have been riding for a couple of years now. Mostly for the low impact cardio. I have become addicted. My normal rides are between 10 and 25 miles, about 3 to 5 times per week. I just turned 50 years old.
I recently started having some knee pain, so i backed off on my ride length and frequency.
The pain went away about 75% after a few weeks of taking it easy.
Recently my job got in the way of my bike riding and i couldnt ride for a couple of weeks. I figured that when i could finally get back in the saddle, my knee would be healed, but thats not the case.
I havent been back on my bike yet and this morning, while working, out of nowhere my left knee cap starting really hurting.
I googled "Pain in the center of my kneecap" and your site came up with a posting about a similar issue, so i joined.
The pain feels like it is just under the skin, in the center of my knee cap. It hurts when getting up from a sitting position or sitting down from a standing position.
Does anybody know what this could be or has had this experiance. What forum should i go to with questions like this?
Thanks for listening and any direction or wisdom would be greatlly appreciated.
