Am going to a pain management doctor next week... think it may be tendonitis plus IT band syndrome...seems also one of my muscle groups not firing... the VMO... making other muscles overwork and perhaps impacting the struggles I am having ...

So, went to physiatrist, (Specialist in musculoskelatal issues)...sonogram shows that my fascia (soft tissue covering) is ‘stuck to my knee in a variety of places surrounding my knee and up through IT band which is causing the stiffness and pain...This is not the same as scar tissue.. It will not be an overnight fix, but received lidocaine and saline injections to hydrate the fascia and calm the pain... Need to go monthly for a few months... Will be focusing on fascial release in PT for a while...Hoping to see some results in a few weeks... fingers crossed...
