Hang in there! Setbacks are part of getting healthy (and life). Take the long view. See yourself months from now back out there running!

Give yourself time to get better without beating yourself up.

One of the things that helped me tremendously because I have RA in addition to having one knee that had 7 operations on it and my other knee with 2 operations, is seeing a doctor who specializes in sports medicine. It makes all the difference. I even made sure that my doctor is also a runner and biker. Don't be afraid to question your doctor.
Good luck.

BIGDRUNNER,

Do you still run with your knees like that? Running does not seem to bother me but I am reading where you should not run with arthritis in the knee. I am trying to bicycle more now. I see the doctor in September, I did have a shot in the knee back in June and it does feel a little better but not what I thought it would be. Wish me luck.

Have you tried using a foam roller for your IT band? It helped me and has helped many with IT band issues.

As some of you know I have been fighting with this knee for a few years now....I am at the point where I have did NO activity (except walking) for about 1 1/2 months and my knee is worse than ever. My husband kept blaming my activity on the knee pain so I needed to prove him wrong and I think I did.
I feel like crap mentally most of the time so I am starting to exercise again. (whoo hooo) I do see the Ortho dr. in September and hopefully I can get this IT band straightened around, since it is not helping with the arthritis. In the mean time I am starting with a group of friends riding my bicycle, they are going to try and do a century ride next year.....hmmmm maybe I will also. Wish me luck!!

I have been to so many docs for this knee that I am at the end of my rope.
