Long story short: a few years ago I got knee pain after doing lots of cardio everyday for a few months(2013), pain has come back every time after pushing myself too hard but would go away after rest. Doctor said it’s just an overuse injury but I’ve never had an MRI or anything to see what’s actually wrong with my knees.
A month ago I tried doing some leg exercises (very mild ones with no weights) and the pain started again and it got worse at work (I have a really physical job - 8/9 hours on my feet, walking around). I took 5 days off and went back for 2 weeks still in pain. Took another 16 days off and there was no more pain at rest and a bit of pain after walking for a long time that would go away after an hour of rest.
I went back to work on Monday and now my knees are a bit painful, but I’ve also got some new injury that I have no idea what it could possibly be. I get pain when I walk or press behind my left knee (towards the left side and the pain goes down my calf about a quarter). It’s as if I had a bruise but there’s nothing there. My foot is also a bit swollen and painful especially at touch somewhere near the calcaneo fibular ligament. It’s hard to explain what it could be. My left foot feels a bit numb as well which did happen in the past when I went to work in pain.
I phoned the doctors but they can’t see me until the 8th of May and I’m honestly scared to go back to work in case I might injure my leg even more. I’m not looking for medical advice, but I hope someone has a good piece of advice for me and maybe there’s someone out there who went through this at some point.
