When I was in college I would run up the stairs to work and I would feel a very sharp pain under my right kneecap. I would stop and it would immediately go away.

Fast forward 20+ (cough) years and the knee pain has gotten steadily worse alternated with good days.

We had a huge snow storm followed by ice storm and I attacked the driveway with zeal (I had cabin fever and had to get out). I not only cleared my drive way and sidewalk but my neighbors on both sides and across the street (I live in a neighborhood populated with people in their 80's - I'm the spring chicken).

It took me about three hours and I was feeling great until the next morning. Both my knees ached. Usually I have been plagued by knee pain in my right knee only but I could barely walk!

It's now been three weeks. My knee pain in my left knee has cleared. I have only ran twice since then and after each time, I am sidelined with aching pain in my right knee.

I started taking ibuprofen twice a day to deal with the achiness. Today my knee is better but twinges....

Any advice would be really really really appreciated!
