    I just finished playin ball for 3-4 hours, and my left knee is killin me. I've narrowed the pain down, its from the bottom under portion of my knee cap. It started hurting about 2-3 months ago when I was playn football. It hurts only after/during i play sports, and randomly when im in a car or driving. It was fine before, and i dont recall any serious injuries to that knee.

    Any input before i head to the clinic?

    It might be a soft tissue tear or maybe ACL/PCL (can't remember which is which). Do you warm up properly before you play basketball?

    I think I have some ITB strains in both knees after running on concrete. I've tried every 2-3 weeks to do some light jogging, but the pain returns immediately, so I've avoided cardio for the last few months waiting for it to heal... I'm thinking of seeing a physical therapist in the coming weeks if it doesn't improve
