Knee (?) Pain--not sure what's up
I have recently been experiencing an intermittent pain *above* my right knee. It seems to be localized to the top, outside portion of my femur (very close to that bony bit you and feel when you are seated and put your hands on your knees)
I only experience the pain when climbing out of the saddle and I notice it most when I pull up on the ďdownĒ peddle; if I donít pull up but merely transfer my weight to the other leg, the pain doesnít seem to show up.
Iím perplexed as to the cause because youíd think if it were directly related to my technique, that Iíd experience it in both legs. Iím also not sure why it only appear when Iím climbing since I surely use the same muscle when seated (?).
I searched the forums and some book that I have on sports medicine and havenít seen this problem mentioned.
Anybody else out there experience this of have any good guesses? (Iím hoping to avoid a trip to the medical library.)
