Sorry to open yet another knee pain thread, but today on my ride I started getting knee pain in my left knee around mile 10 that lasted most of the rest of the trip. Around the same time my knee started hurting, I realized I hadn't eaten little carbs and not much today (just 3 eggs, a bagel with creamcheese, a cinnamon bun, and a glass of cranberry juice today).
A little history about my knee: It's been smashed into pavement countless times. It creaks when I stand up, but rarely actually hurts anymore. The only way you can tell something has happened to it is when it creaks.
Anyway, I remember reading somewhere that if you don't get enough glucose in a certain amount of time, your joints start to ache. Since my left knee has been banged up more than my right, I assume that I was lacking enough glucose to make my injured knee ache without my other knee being affected. Am I right that this can happen, or am I imagining things?
Thanks in advance
