knee pain

Posted by Jake on 9/12/02 at 22:09 (095208)

I am a runner. I haven't run for about 6 weeks since the PF started. For the past few weeks my knees have been hurting. Is this common? Does it have something to do with my suddenly stopping running?

Now, I'm not a doctor, but I have a feeling that you are having similar difficulties that I am having. I had surgery on my left foot 9 weeks ago, and since I have been allowed to begin walking again in the last 1 1/2 weeks, I have had left knee pain. I believe that it may be a result of an altered gait, perhaps protecting the foot that hurts, thereby straining the knee.

You're right...knee pain, hip pain and back pain can all stem from PF.
