I ran a half marathon in october, towards the end of the run behind my right knee was painful and felt like it was going to cramp up but it didn't. Since then when I sit with my leg bent or in one position for too long it is really painful to straighten out again. It has recently started getting much worse and hurts pretty much all the time.

After the half marathon I stopped running for a while and after xmas started to run short distances again with no extra pain to my knee. However in the last few weeks it has got worse.

The pain is directly behind my knee but it is starting to move into the sides of my knee.

I've booked a Doctors appointment but its not for two weeks. Just wondering if anyone has any advise?

Thanks

I had similar issues, turned out i had JIA (Juvenile idiopathic arthritis)

Though this sounds more like Osgood slatters, which you usually grow out of.

Osgood schlatters presents with pain on the front of the knee at the top of the tibia, not the back of the knee.

Really? I dont think its joint pain though it feels more muscle pain. Also as i hurt my knee doing exercise so would this really be the cause.
