Could be a baker's cyst. I had developed one of these from running but didn't know what it was and just kept working out and it kept getting worse. I finally went and got some physical therapy to take care of it.
I dunno. I've had those probably a dozen times. The pain is similar but it's only in that small area rather than all the way down the back of the leg.
Wife says it's time to face reality and start playing the old white guy's game: hustle around the perimeter settting and using a series of annoying screens, rarely jump, never sprint, etc. Dagger.
seriously, sounds like bursitis is quite possible. Is it swollen at all?
It sounds like a textbook meniscus tear. Do you have a full range of motion?
Yeah, I can move around, it just hurts.
Yeah, I've played with guys around that age and I always think I hope I'm still able when I'm that old.
I just don't have the restraint to play that way. It's boring not to dunk and stuff.
What a drag it is, getting old.
If it ever feels like ROM is being restricted by something other than swelling, it is pretty much a lock to be a meniscus. But it can be a meniscus with full ROM.
Is the pain sharp or dull?
As someone who has had 3 knee surgeries I would recommend going to the doctor and having it checked out. I waited way to long to get my knee checked out the first time and it resulted in me having a bit more complicated surgery and depleting a good amount of cartilage in my knee.
Also from your description I would agree with others who have said it potentially a meniscus tear.
Why always Boris?
Yeah, the sooner you take care of it, the better it will end up if it is something like a meniscus tear. I played the last 30ish games of my season before getting the surgery and it was a big mistake.
If you're so smart, why aren't you rich?
i currently have bursitis of the elbow. zero pain whatsoever and it is on the "front" of the elbow. I haven't done much research except to diagnose my elbow, but isn't the sack on the front part of the elbow & knee? I'd imagine it's similar to the elbow.
Sharp, I'd say.
There are a bunch in the knee and definitely one in the back of the knee.
I use to get this same pain after running in a hilly area or running steps for a long period of time. Mine was never as bad as I couldn't put weight on it but it would hurt and get really stiff. After advice from my running group, I started doing more stretching before and after running and it seemed to get rid of the problem but I have no idea if its the same as yours.
Unless you play basketball 4 times a week you should go ahead and stop. I know 3 people, around 40, who all tore their achilles. I stopped playing shortly after hearing the horror stories.
Getting an MRI on my knee next week. Definite meniscus tear loading a keg into a barrel. #dipshit
Yea I'd worry about the B & B's healthcare too

Does it hurt when you do this?
google popliteus muscle
Or the ischiocavernosus muscle.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
I had something that sounds similar and it turned out not to be a big deal. I wish i could remember the diagnosis, but i think something (tendon, ligament, i dont know) above the knee was too tight and pulling on the knee. He gave me a handful of exercises to stretch it out over time, but i didn't really follow up on it since i had all but quit those kinds of activities. Occasionally i still get pain there, but to a much lesser extent and it usually fades quickly.
This could have absolutely nothing to do with your issue, but it sounds similar. The pain and weakness was most noticeable for me when i tried to climb stairs.
Why, you're a strapping, healthy young man. I believe that, you being a strapping, healthy young man, the pain you feel is imaginary, and you need not fear for your physical health. My prescription for you, young man, is to have faith that, collectively, we are the healthiest nation on earth, and will continue to be the healthiest nation on earth as long as we all pull together, and look forward to the future.
Thank you for your support, and rest assured, I will not rest until we all enjoy the great state of health that we all enjoy as a nation.
