Um.

So for ~ the last week or so, my knee has been acting up. Wasn't so bad most of the time, just hurt when I knelt down to get things off the lower shelves at work.

Today, it won't bend really at all.

Crap.

It is definitely sore to the touch now- right above the kneecap. Hurts like hell if I try to bend it. Like, say, driving. :|

I am probably going to the doctor tomorrow.

:look

Just did some research.

I have runner's knee! \o/

Symptoms

Dull, aching pain under or around the front (anterior) of the kneecap-where the kneecap (patella) connects with the lower end of the thighbone (femur). It hurts to:

Go up or down stairs

Kneel

Squat

Sit with the knee bent for long periods of time


I may have a problem with the remedies, though...
Stop doing any activities that hurt the knee, and don't start again until you can do them without any pain.


Um. Am I supposed to not go to work, then?
