|About 4 years ago I suffered from what my doctor said 'ligment pain' just below my knee and ever since i've been suffering from pain on and off but recently its been behind the 'patella' area.
What I am suffering at the moment is pain in what feels like between the 'patella' and the 'femur' area but the pain only seems to be when i'm going up and down stairs, kneeling, bending, walking up and down hills and do on. I am also suffering from cracking in teh same area when I bend my knee, which i've not suffered from before.
I have been to see a doctor who has put me on ibuprofen which I have been taking now for 5 days and no different, I know there not magic pills and work overnight but its not even eased off. I have been wearing tubigrip to help support my knee when up and about but take it off at night (as required) due to circulation.
I'm a very active person and with four children aged 12, 10 and 9 year old, as well as a 20 month old I have no choice but to be active .
I was just wondering if any one has and idea what this could be.
