Any knee experts out there.Posted 4 years ago
A few weeks back to took a 20mph dab on the bike. Foot came out of the cleat.
When my leg came down hard and twisted I felt a nasty clicking twist from m knee which promptly collapsed leaving me rolling in the boar diggings. Nasty sensation making feel sick as well. I managed to ride after a few minutes and it eased off and stupidly I finished my loop. Bloody hell, was it sore that night but gradually it has sorted itself out.
What is not right is the occasional collapse of the knee. I seem to step with the knee a bit straight and it wants to fold the wrong way. It sort of goes over cam, backwards and won’t hold my weight. I end up rolling on the floor. Not funny when I am half way up the stairs, twice now or even was trying to get on the CCM which is way high. That has put me on the floor under the bike twice.
Sorry but I do ramble on.
Anyway. Any suggestions as to what I may have damaged. Once the pain has gone from these collapse’s, say 10 minutes , all I have is a very sore patch behind the knee and a definite instability to the joint. It seems to ease up and all feels well for a week then it goes again.
CCM is for sale as so far I have only dropped it in safe places but one day it won’t be clever. Collective guess work welcomed.DrPMember
I’m a GP…
Give it a week.. take paracetamol..stop smoking…lose weight….
(in all seriousness, as has been said above, it sounds like ligamental +/- menisci issues, which warrants onward referral via GP)
