I have come to believe that for all the Marathons, sponsored runs, walks, swims, bike rides etc that I have done for the best part of my life.. for all kinds of charities.. raised thousands of pounds.. had blistered feet, cramp, pulled this n that's. Lost toe nails through friction due to miles and miles n miles of training..that I have possibly worn my joints out! Having had a swollen left knee for quite a long time (3 months roughly) I decided to go have a friendly chat with the Doc. I was right in my theory about wearing myself out.. don't get me wrong, if I had my time again.. I would run again, raise megga amounts of money for charity.. my knee has become swollen.. it's very tender and for the past three weeks I have been limping,. I have started self help. I now take Glucosamine with sulphate twice every day.. I wear supportive tubular bandage on my leg every day.. I rest when I am asleep.. I find it very difficult to rest for more than five minutes.. I'm a 'fidget' can't sit still.. but I find red wine helps, normally after an 8 hour shift of cleaning.. I am half way to falling asleep... wine just helps my eyes to close ;)))). Anyway.. I have the symptoms of 'house maids knee' and I can here you askin yourselves what the fuck is that? PAINFUL springs to mind.. fluid under my knee cap.. Arthritis to be precise!! So if anyone can shine some light on this, got any other remedies or painkilling ideas, I'd be most grateful for your input. I have to admit it's starting to piss me off, especially when it interferes my m'bike riding abilities!! That aint funny!!!!!
