Waited a whole week to do squats, and out of nowhere I get really sharp pain in the knee. I had a partially(very minor) torn MCL a year ago,and had similar pain. It's definately not that now. Was wondering if it's ok for me to still work out my legs with this pain?
I'd make sure it's not a serious injury.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

No good squat is worth permanently destroying your knee after you feel a sharp pain that has nothing to do with previous workouts. I mean, why take the risk? I'd talk to the doc.

It's definately knee inflamation. The doctors don't know how to treat it and basically told me to sit idle for the rest of my life, and it wont hurt. I had this same problem last year, and somehow managed to live with it and eventually I either forgot about the pain, or it stopped. Does anyone else suffer from this?
ive had similar things.....i used to get this therapy stuff for my arm so i could still pitch in high school.....if your really dedicated you could ask your doctor about that or wear a brace or something
