View Full Version : Inflamed Knee?

08-05-2006, 11:21 PM
Last Winter, during basketball season, a particularly heavy girl landed on my knee, doing some damage to it (enough to keep me out of a game). Since then, I've seen my doctor, and he examined it thoroughly. He said that my knee was simply inflamed and that I should take 2 ibuprofen a day. Granted the ibuprofen reduce the pain, they make me sick when I run.

Are ibuprofen blood thinners, same as aspirin? (I never really had that clarified by my doc) And does anyone have any advice as to what I might do about my knee problems? The pain isn't really extraordinary until about 2 hours after my run.

Did you tell your doctor that you're a runner when you went to see about your knee? Maybe when you go back the doc can prescribe something that won't make you pass out when you go for a sprint.
