Hi everyone,

I developed flat feet in my feet at age 20 due to having a growth spurt) when I was a teenager, I have been having problems with my feet no matter what I do, I wear insoles all the time and I change my shoes quite often, but it has now got to the point where I am in constant agony with my legs, it has been going on for the past month were the pain keeps getting more and more severe and now it has got to the point where I can hardly walk, some days it doesn't affect me at all and other days I'm crippled over in pain, the pain is now in my left knee and I'm not a runner, I walk quite a bit but now I cannot even do that as I'm too sore to even do it. I have a doctor's appointment made to see what is going on, but it's 2 weeks away and this pain is getting more severe.

    I went to the doctor yesterday and he said my kneecap was inflamed, he said it was called Chondromalacia Patella, so I can relieve the pain by using the RICE method, so I might try that, I also have to do exercises to strengthen my leg and muscles, so my quadriceps, triceps and calf muscles, I don't do the exercises because I keep forgetting about them and with my knee being so painful, I just don't know if I can do so.

    Have you looked at your diet? If the foods you're eating produce acidity in the body, the pain is likely to be worse than if you're on an alkaline diet. I get mild knee pain occasionally - though not what you have - and find it can get worse if I've eaten nuts and increased protein intake.

    Set aside some time to try your exercises. ICE your knee before exercises and after. Take meds about 30 min before your exercises. If you are not getting better go back to your doctor or get a second opinion. Perhaps exercising in a pool would be easier for you. Another suggestion is to go to a physiotherapist. Hoping it will get better for you.
