    Tbh, you've hit the nail on the head - nothing medical on here wouldn't probably be a bad thing.

    Go on then Doogie Howser, enlighten us.

    And then make an appointment to see your doctor.

    Are you this much of a patronising d1ck in real life? If you're down the pub with your mates and someone asks if anyone else has back pain, do you shout them down with your Tourettic "GO AND SEE A DOCTOR"

    If it is bicycle related, or some such triviality, post on here.

    From reading your posts you wouldn't know a good case of crepitus if it came and beat you in the Farage with a banjo, so I suggest you go and see your doctor.

    Go and see your doctor.

    OK - nothing health-related on this forum then - best inform the moderators. You are assuming there is nothing to be gained from obtaining some anecdotal evidence before seeking medical advice (which I was always going to do because I am not a moron). And yes, I know perfectly well what Crepitus is - I suggest you don't.
    I think it's also worth noting that Matt works in the medical profession (he applies Mr Men bandages to Navy Seals or summat :wink: ) so he is giving you an almost medical opinion to go and see your doctor!

    Every time I’ve been to see my doctor about a muscular/skeletal problem. He said it’s arthritis, tendonitis, a torn muscle followed by a look which says “ what do you expect riding a bike/ climbing/ doing weights or exercising at your age”.
    Go see a physio or osteopath.

    Change doctor.

    Osteopaths are quacks.

    I did the course and now I'm quall'd to use Hello Kitty plasters as well as Mr Man stuff.

    But in the case of the OP if I were him I'd go and see his doctor.

    I spent 30 years working along side doctors. If I needed meds or surgery yes fine other than that I’d see another health professional.
  • thanks all, I think.

    Note to self one - do not discuss knee complaints on a cycling forum
    Note to self two - go and see a doctor

    If it is any consolation, MF is indeed this much of a nob to everyone else. It is at least possible that he is just as cocky in real life.

    If my mate tells me he's having trouble with his rear mech, I'll go round his house with allen keys and a screwdriver. If he tells me he keeps getting headaches, I don't go round his house with a drill.

    Go see a Dr.

    See - if you'd have taken my advice at the top of the thread you could have seen your doctor by now and not got all angry and raised your blood pressure which, at your age, really is something you should be careful about.

    If needs be, I'd go and see a doctor about that. The silent killer they call it.....

    Don't forget to ask him about your knee and, did you mention above that you had a bad back as well?

    if it helps, i'm going to see the doctor this afternoon about my own knee after an off i had after Christmas. It became infected for which they gave me a dose of ABs for. It healed-ish. Scabbed over, but then last week blistered up, the scab came off and now seems to be infected again.

    I'm going to see the doctor, i've not sought help on here and have not tried to apply a native american poultice made from moss and wood louse/lice(?)

    Leech’s might be better than the wood lice.

    Where can you get good leeches nowadays. My LLS (local leech shop) closed down due to online competition, but i find the Amazon ones are not up to scratch after being shipped over from China.

    Medicinal honey for scrapes and road rash and insect bites. Blimmin' brilliant stuff.

    Used it on loads of people in the jungle last year. Utterly brilliant.

  • thanks for the genuine advice and good humour - not taking this too seriously I can assure you; just thought it was clear I was after some general knee chat, not a legally binding medical diagnosis!

    leeches.co.uk used to be very good but with brexit I'm not sure where they are getting their stock from.

    As I said, used to be very good but they could now suck. But its worth a gander.

    or any branch of the conservative party - the tories like a good leech or two.

    I have had problems with my knees on and off for a long time. Basically my foot alignment is all wrong due to breaking it a long time ago doing Taekwondo. Straightening the foot to ride the bike pulled the knee out of alignment and caused pain over longer distances. At one point I got half way down the stairs at work and my knee went, I couldn't put the other in front to get down the stairs so had to go back up and take the lift, yet I was perfectly able to walk without pain and ride the bike! I couldn't walk down any stairs for weeks but the physio put it right through some appropriate exercises and I ended up getting some inserts for my cycling shoes to correct the foot.
    So, as MF and any other medical professional would tell you on here:
    Go and see your doctor!

    I just like the banter, don't take it personally!

    Does sound potentially like arthritis though so worth speaking to a professional about. :)

    If you can’t get medical grade leeches you could always try WD40. This comes recommended from a building site near you.

    Good, because I'm buggerred if I could tell what was wrong with it by some random post on an internet forum without knowing your history, current physical state, examining the knee and discussing it with you.

    Personally I'd recommend going to see your doctor.

    Do I need to injure myself before I book my appointment though.
