Last spring I rode a new bike to hard to soon....ever since after 30 mins+ (no matter what load) I get a 'funny feeling' below and to the right of my knee cap (right leg). I have averaged 6k per year for the past 5 years. I am in my thirties ... upper thirties now.
Visit 1: Physio its ' platelar tendonitis (sp?)' solution core strength, stretch, role etc, Physio pushes and prods knee cap with 'hmm' look as he cannot find any painful spots
1 month later no change
Visit 2: Physio its same problem young man do more
Visit 3 Chiro: not sure but whack, bang, no change
Visit 4: Massage 2x full body, felt great, no change
(always ICING knee because thats what I thought it was)
**strange I notice if I wear knee warmers I have zero issues no matter how long or how hard** Guess Sugoi makes a good product : )
So I have been stretching and core strengthening for the past 6 months even took 2 months 'off'.
After 30-40 mins light spin indoors same issue --- frustrated.
Visit 5: Massage guy, says your shin is inflamed/warm...hmmm lets put a small piece of tape around your leg just below the 'fibula' -- not very tight. I can bike on the trainer for 60 mins no problem, tape fell off last night for the last 10 mins - same issue. Now I am starting to ICE my shin. Massage guy says his opinion is its a muscle / tendon issue in the shin pulling something that I feel lower to the right of my knee cap...' seems odd but hey the tape worked'
Super frustrated/agitated because I want/need to ride my bike --- idealy not with a piece of masking tape around my leg -- ideas?? thanks in advance - and yes I know I should check everything with a medical expert : )
