...And i really had no idea what was causing it.
Basically every time I'd take a step while walking i could feel a sharp pain in my right knee, so i would stop and see if i could fix it but the problem persisted. I figured it wasn't anything serious so i just continued to walk/run on it for a while (for some reason it didn't hurt as much when i ran). Anyways so about a week ago i was walking my dog and my knee REALLY started to hurt. So i went home and sat down and tried to see if i could locate the issue.
I couldn't find anything wrong with it so i took my mothers advice and just rested. The next day my leg was much better (just a little tender).
So i had this theory that it was my shoes that were doing it. IDK why i just felt like that had something to do with it. So today I decided to do a little experiment. I put on my shoes that had the least padding in the sole(my vans) and went to go work out. To my liking I went the entire day not having ANY knee pains while walking or running. So tonight i took my dog for a walk and used some regular Globe skate shoes. In a matter of 30 steps my knee started to ache, so i took my shoes off and walked barefoot(i had socks on) for about a good 15 minutes and the knee pain went away. So i tried my asics running shoes (which i almost always wear when exercising or walking my dog) and the same thing happened.
so all along it was the shoes that was making my knee hurt(WTF)
Idk if this is just me or not, but regardless i cant wear any of my shoes anymore
Sorry if there's other topics like this i just felt like sharing my story.
EDIT: forgot to add the pain was in the back of my knee
