I have been having this weird problem the last day or so and can't figure out what it is.
In my quad, just above my right knee I get a twinge when I extend my leg and ocassionally it goes weak and my leg gives way.
I wouldn't even call it a pain, more of a 'twang' when I put weight on that leg.
I can walk around ok, but every know and then it goes again.

It is stopping me from going for a run today, so I am a bit pissed off with it.
anyone have similar experiences?

I have recently started getting the occasional sharp pain in my right quad. Sometimes comes on for a few seconds when I'm just sitting down. Hasn't stopped my running yet though...

I have actually now discovered that it is quad tendonitis, with a touch of ITBS thrown in too.
Nearly back to normal now, so might risk a run soon.

Got something to say?
