Looking for knee knowledge

After just about every game this season, a different part of my body hurt. I actually took that as a good sign. If my ankle was sore yesterday, but my groin today, and my hammy last Thursday, that meant I didn't have a problem.

But my left knee is bugging me for a few days now. The inside part of it, kinda low. Feels like it's bone hitting bone, although I guess I'd have no idea what that feels like. Strangely, it only hurts when I sit around...I haven't noticed it during games.

1. Am I risking amputation by continuing the season?
2. Is it a good idea to do acupuncture on one's self?
3. Should I invest in a sleeve? Ice down after games?
4. Would I be overreacting going to a doctor at the first sign of pain...just a sign of hypochondria?
5. If I miss my big big (rescheduled) game on Monday for this, can I Gilooly somebody else's kneecap just to make myself feel better?

It sounds like you may have some tendonitis. No big deal: I acquired tendonitis in my left knee during grad school. You may want to go see a sports medicine specialist, depending upon how long this has lasted. In the meantime, icing down after games is never a bad idea.

Do not feel bad for seeking medical attention. You're a smart fellow, BR, but you don't have the letters M.D. after your name. Let the professionals take care of your knee. ;-)
