Just wondering....do you end up in hospital because of your quads or unrelated reasons hence an enforced rest? After the month or so of symptoms after giving up cycling, are you generally able to walk down stairs, hills etc?Hi Penny. I’ve ‘given up’ cycling regularly for years. Most of the pain is gone after a month or so, but minor episodes continue for a few months. I then inevitably come back to it - am doing this now - and end up in the hospital at some point, quit again, then come back to it a year or so later. I think the key is to stay hydrated to mitigate kidney issues. But I’ve found no resolution for the pain. Good luck!
