I finally went to an Orthopedic doctor to see what exactly is going on with my left knee. My knee has been giving me issues since I injured it in junior high….jump roping “Go figure”!! Well, about a year ago I started running and well, I don’t run…..but it’s the only thing that seemed to help me shed the weight. While running, pain would hit which I can only describe as someone taking an ice pick and stabbing it below my knee cap.
About a month ago, I reinjured it some how…… “you don’t remember how you hurt your knee?” you ask. That’s correct. I woke up one morning with a huge bruise on my knee and the pain was just not in one area it spread…..this was the morning after experiencing my first and LAST Ambien sleepwalk. I was no longer able to squat without feeling some tearing and burning……kneeling was now painful. Call me a glutton for punishment or …..well a wife who enjoys the touch of her husband because about two weeks ago while in the throes of passion and not giving a care in the world about what position I was in I pushed the pain that I felt in my knee aside and focused on the pleasure….boy was I paying the price later!! But it was worth it.
Friday, after meeting with doctor he told me that I have:
Otherwise known as “Runners Knee”. Really??? I get runners knee even though I don’t run….REALLY?? he told me that he wanted me to go to Physical Therapy to strengthen the muscles around my knee and hopefully this will take care of any and all pain.
When I got home and relayed the news to my husband he said the same thing “Uhm but you don’t run”, “yes I know” I responded…..as he glanced down at the papers the doctor provided, he started to read the “How does this occur?” section.
“Honey did you read this?” he asked.
“No, not really I just glanced at it”
“ it pretty much says your wide hips could have played a part in this”
“shut up….. hahaha”
I looked at what he was reading and wouldn’t you know ……………..
