Knee problem...

Never had problems with my right knee before...not been training for two weeks at all due to personal circumstances and all of a sudden my right knee is giving me a bit of pain. Went to the gym today (first time in 15 days) and did a few light squats working my way up to a set at normal weight. After my knee is hurting much more... any ideas?

I can tense the knee joint with no pain..I can lift my leg up off the floor but as soon as I get more than 45 deg of the floor the pain kicks in. Seems to be stemming from the knee cap itself right near the top of it...poked and prodded everywhere else no pain..just pain from the top of the knee cap itself?
Don't want to hassle the doc unless I have to thought I would ask here first lol
even sta at my desk no because the legs bent at 90 degrees it's throbbing a bit. Not bad pain just a nag.

    This just all of the sudden happened? You didn't twist it or crack it in a way where it hurt? well either way it wouldnt hurt to see a doctor just to make sure nothin it out of whack.

    See a private physio or sports therapist, doctors are poor at dealing with these situations, not only do they not have the adequate training to deal with the problem, on top of that they don't really have the time to deal with it properly, and many NHS trained staff are of the opinion 'it's self inflicted, serves them right'.

    Post your symptoms tomorrow, it'll give a better indictation of what you may or may not have done! If you get any swelling in the mean time, get the good old 'RICE' protocol out.

    No swelling..there was no sudden onset due to an obvious injury I can walk on it no probs without pain. Just when I lift the knee higher as if to knee a punchbag it hurts when the leg goes to 90 degrees. Weird one:(
    Feels as it the pains coming from the top of the actual knee cap (patella) itself?? not in the joint but from the actual cap...right at the top of the cap just on the edge. To be honest it feels like it's been whacked with a bar/impact injury no marks or bruises and I can;t remember hittign it or anyhting?

    I had a similar complaint a few months back with my right knee, the physio said my problem was an inflammed patella tendon. Something about my right quad being tight and causing the tendon grief. A good massage of my quad sorted it right out. If a massage doesn't help your situation then seeing a physio is a good bet.

    I think you hit the nail on the head both times there..one inadvertently.
    I was quad bike riding the day before I am such a dumbass....I had forgotten about it your post about "quads" reminded me lol...and also I think it was a tendon on the patella as theres no pain now at all.
