Thanks, Bobby! It's all better now. I am pretty cautious when it comes to injuries, so I like to err on the side of caution and consult with people who know better than I(you guys!)... Icing helped tremendously. I'll run in the morning and keep you posted. I've been stretching and doing plenty of yoga (had been slacking on yoga last week), which is always helpful!

sciatica and swelling can do that. also an IT band issue, if you have no pain give it a day or so before you call dr's. if all is good give the legs another spin it may have just been some freaky thing like many runners have

Propped is good, just pull the keyboard into your lap! If icing doesn't help I would call the doc to be safe!

It's maybe slightly different (puffier) than the left but not too much. Icing seems to be helping. I'm quite a site. One leg propped up on the desk while typing!

Sciatica can do that, it's more than likely a pinch somewhere.

Physically do your 2 knees look different? Numb one puffy around the knee cap?

Thanks! A friend suggested icing--that it might be swollen. I'm going to give it a few hours. Fingeres crossed. Still worth a call to the doc, I think!

I never heard or experience it. But it sounds like it might be somehting that is worth going to the doctor for. Could be nerve related.
best of luck

Hi, everyone! Because of time constraints, I've not been running much since my 10K on Thanksgiving. I've been doing maybe two three-milers a week.
Yesterday, I did a great 3.75 mile run, came home and stretched thoroughly. Later I went to a party and stood for about three hours. Last night, I noticed a weird feeling in my right knee--sort of tingly. It didn't hurt at all. Today, I realized by entire knee is numb! I have no plans to run today or do much else until I figure this out.
My questions for you: Have you experienced this? Is this normal, something that I just need to rest for a couple of days, or is this something extraordinary? Do I wait it out or call the doctor. If I wait it out, I won't be doing any cardio.
Thanks!
Stepf
