I dislocated my knee in 2003 from a sports injury. At the time I never went to the docs, I put ice on it, took ibuprofen and gave myself time to heal. It was possibly the most painful thing (child birth being no1) that's ever happened to me.
In 2008 I ran Reading half marathon and 2009 the Bupa London 10,000 and I had seen the doctor prior and he said my knee was very lax due to the dislocation but that it was safe to run on - and it was fine. But in the last couple of years the joint has started to ache and groan on the slightest weather change. Sometimes driving is very sore also.
I was unaware of arthritis, or the possibility of it in myself until I did a charity even here in Spain for stroke support and ended up having a good old natter with a lady who was diangosed with arthritis. She mentioned it to me as I told her of my knee and thought it would be worth getting it checked. I think that I wanted to find out more info so I found this website and hopefully I can relate to people.
I am also terrible at going to the docs, but if needs must...
I would like to know if anyone has had any sports related injuries that have ended up like this.
