Patient : Hey doc, my name is ethan, after running about 47 miles in a week ( not by choice ) my left knee started to hurt. not on the outside, but on the inside on the left side. it only hurts when i run for a long period of time or up hill. does not hurt when i walk except after a long run. i have not noticed any poping sounds, although if i sit down and flex my knee i can feel a draging feeling. no swelling. spent eight years as a mechanic kneeling down to set the rack, also i am currently active duty army. had an X-ray done, nothing found. was given meds, did no good. even after 15 days of no running, still hurts after and during a run. what are your thoughts?
