Right iv never had any real injuries but went running today, and i have a pain in the outside of my knee at the side at the bottom. Its hard to explain but it hurts more when i twist my leg slightly out or walk up stairs. It didnt bother me much while running but wanted some advice on what it might be and should i just carry on running if it doesnt hurt that much thank you h:confused:

Pain is usually a good indicator that something isn't quite right and its time to slow down a little. Ice the area of pain - when did you notice the pain? Was it during the run? After the run? If during the run did it come on gradually and get worse?

There are a couple of things it could be such illiotibial band friction syndrome (ITBS) or paetella femoral pain (PFP) have a look at www.physioroom.com. As you said you had pain going upstairs I was assuming the latter but you'd need to see a trained professional for a proper diagnosis.

Hiya

Is it definitely knee, or could it be upper calf? If it's muscle you may want to try exercises to strengthen it, that worked for me when I injured mine.
