When I ride everything feels great until I slow down or stop for a stoplight or something. When I start up again the first 5 to 10 pedal revolutions gives me a extreme stabbing pain on the media side of my right knee. The kneecap does not seem to be involved it is to the left of that and slightly above. After about 10 pedal revolutions the pain disappears and I can continue riding like nothing happened.
Some rides this happens more than once. On other rides it does not happen at all. The more fit I am seems to make it happen less. I get no swelling or redness or pain by pressing on the area. I don't feel it off the bike which makes it almost impossible to have the doctors look at it.
I've had the knee x-rayed for arthritis or whatever and it came back "unremarkable."
This has been going on for a couple of years.
Does anyone have a similar experience I might suggest to the docs to check into?
