    The camera down the willy isn't anything like as bad as it sounds.

    As for the OP though, if I were him I'd be seeing my doctor.

    Nah, just go to see her. This may or may not be CB's on/off squeeze.

    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.
    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.
    Isn't that a good thing?
    I must confess in days of yore when we were allowed in pubs we would sometimes ask Dr Tim for medical advice. Depending on how much he'd had to drink his advice would vary from "drink more of this and you'll be fine", through "take two aspirin and see me in the morning" to "go and see your doctor".

    The first two are the only options available to a GP anyway.

    Tbh dude, although I hinted at it I'm not if I was clear enough - good point well presented

    OP - go and see your doctor.

    Just to be absolutely clear, that’s a medical doctor rather than some random astrophysicist, for example, relative?

    I am a doctor. I know about magnets. I therefore suggest magnet therapy, such as a bracelet.

    preferably yes, its what i would recommend for this, however my brother has, noshit, a doctorate in archaeology, and if you listened to him you'd think he could solve this random knee issue, the climate crisis, middle eastern problems and the current US constitutional crisis before breakfast.

    but yes, i suggest OP goes and sees his medical doctor.

    Just seen the my doctor. “ She said not another f@cking cyclist with a knee problem, have you been taking advice from some bloke in Wales on the internet”
  • Interestingly, a number of years back I was experiencing knee pain when running (not cycling related - sorry). I went to see my doctor. He was f*cking hopeless !

    Seeing your Doc at the moment could be tricky.
    How do you stretch yours quads?
    I'm a runner (too) now 72, and I stretch my quads twice most days, so 14 times a week. I pull up for 30 secs, with knees together, then use other hand as well and pull more for another 30 secs, then rotate foot into butt crack and pull again for 30, rotate out as far and another 30 secs, 2 mins total. All the time can feel muscle stretch around knee. I also stretch hips just as thoughly. Keeps me running Strava average 25 miles a week.
    The Wife complained for months about the empty pot of bike oil on the hall stand; so I replaced it with a full one.

    I actually went out of my way for this one and had a chat to the guys in my little team here about this. A few of you know what I do and where and I am and we're generally recognised as being pretty good at what we do.

    The general consensus after weighing up all the evidence given was that the OP should go and see his doctor.

    I knew that and that you were not a real honorary doctor.

    Thanks for the info - useful to hear some anecdotal evidence. It got a bit lost under the avalanche of hilarious posts from the Banter Boyz.
