What can be the cause of this pain?(pic)
right now you all are probably thinking "WTF is wrong with the dude this time"
anyway this isnt a recent thing. I started getting pain in the "lump" below the knee that the arrow points to when doing dc training this fall. I had it for a couple of weeks then it went away. After that it has resurfaced several times and each time gotten worse. I dont have it all the time but the times I get it the pain is always worse then the time before. it usualy last for 3 weeks or so and mostly occurs when I for some reason havent been able to work legs good in a few weeks. I get it the most from hacksquats(I cant do that exercise anymore imidiet pain)and smith squats(never gonna do that exercise again either). Also legpress can cause it and regular squats to but not to bad. The thing is that when I have somehow managed to trigger the pain then its byebye quad work(hams I can work no problem at all). Its so intense that its IMPOSSIBLE to work through. If I wrap it REAL REAL thight then I might be able to push a few reps before the pain becomes excruciating. Bugging the hell out of me. Especialy since I have no clue what that is. I have the pain in both legs but more on the left one. Its not in the knee.
What exactly is that "lump" thing that is like 1-2 inches below the knee cap? Its just like above the begining of the shinbone? Ever since the wrestling I have had some cartilage in that upper shinbone area might that be any part of the pain?

Sounds like possibly "chin splints". I have no idea how that is spelled but I hope you get the point.LOL
I used to get the same thing in between the muscle that runs on top of the chin and bone that was unbearable. My doc told me to stretch it really good before squats and running and it gives me minimal problems now. To stretch it you basically have to pull back on the top of the foot at a slight angle and stretch it out. It is almost the oposite of a calf stretch. As for the lump i have no idea. Hope this helps.

lol I would rather be crippled then live like a tiny man except this pain and the knees I have never have joint/tendon pain. No shoulder, elbow, back or wrist problems.

Ohh well Im glad my quads grow even when I only work hams so Its not like a big deal. As long as I can squat and do ham work my legs grows like weed. I have never needed hacks and legpress(one leg at a time is ok though) so I might as well drop them again.

When sitting down look at your right foot. Now take your left hand and place it on top of your foot by the toes. Now pull down on the foot at a slight angle inward to stretch the chin. If I had a digital camerra i would show you a picture. It is hard to explain. You actualy stretch it a little when doing a standing quad stretch. The one where you pull your leg behind you by your opposite arm grabbing the foot.

See and orthopod. Have it Xrayed and stop guessing at what it might be. I had misaligned knee caps that were rubbing on the tibia causing calcium buildup. Hurt like hell to the point where I couldn't bend down. Started doing light leg lifts to strengthen the quad muscles and now no more pain. Knees feel like new.

as long as it's that inflamed your reallly shouldn't work quads though. it may be a puny girl problem, but it may be big. in the mean time it's not like your legs are going to atrophy before your next payday.

Il give the aspirin or some herbal anti inflamatory a try. Never touch stuff like that regulary. Havent even considered it. Thanks for the advice.

Yeah. Its just that I usualy try to stay as far away from meds as I can and rely on natural things. But in this case Il swallow my distaste and use some oct anti i

it doesn't sound like shin splints to me. i used to get shin splints pretty bad from running, especially when playing football. the jarring that you subject your leg to when you run is the cause, and you should actually stretch the opposite of how it was explained. standing up, you leave your upper leg verticle and kick your right foot up into your right hand (thigh stretch), make sure that you grab your foot out on the end of the toe and you will feel it stretch out the muscle along your shin. shin splints dont normally hurt up around the knee. if you run a lot and it does end up being the cause of the pain, you can put heel inserts in your shoes or get shoes that are more cushioned and try to run on softer surfaces... stay away from asphalt. are you on any aas that might cause joint pain?

Yeah that is what I said. Maybe I just decribed it in a confusing way. And yes you can also do it while seated by placing one leg on the others knee and pull down on the foot the opposite of a calf stretch .

Johan it is tendonitus, alternate ice and heat 15 minutes each when you have time to sit down. Motrin (ibuprophin) is the best over the counter stuff. Rest is the only cure for this one...............sorry
