I don't want to venture too far into medical advice, and mods please feel free to shut me down if I am.
I am fairly active (if you don't count the past two weeks of laziness). I dance, and occasionally do yoga. For the past couple months I've had occasional pain and "tightness" behind my left knee. It got pretty bad when I was doing a lot of walking around NYC. It's worst when my leg is at full extension, with a flexed foot.
Since being an arts festival vagabond doesn't come with a health plan, I did a couple searches on the internet that point to something called Baker's Cysts. I've started taking some ibuprofen before workouts, but I'd like to know if anyone else has experienced these symptoms from their workouts and what worked for you. Ice? Heat? Any stretches that helped?
Thanks in advance!
