When it was really bad I had a spot, about the size of a thumb print, on the outside of the knee, just to the right of my right knee cap, it's right where I can see a line of tendon that connects in...that would constantly have a bruise. It's been gone for the last 2 weeks (I also have had little to no pain during that 2 weeks, running short, flat, easy 3 milers on the treadmill). Its really hard to pick it up on the camera, but it's there, here's the best I could do, and you can see in the video better where it is and, obviously, it does not hurt at all to touch/push on it or move it.
Any thoughts out there?? I feel like it's getting better. It feels way better. I am able to walk after I'm done running, and for a while there I could not hardly bend it at all after a run. The sharp knife pains are very few and far between (like once in the past 2 weeks, and when I would expect it to have shown up). I suspect the bruise is a remnant of Saturdays downhill pain, that whatever it is that happens when the pain shoots is what makes the bruise.
