Thank-you Sylviah.In two minds whether to phone my gp now or to wait a little longer and see if it goes away by itself. It's a terrible thing to be worrying about every twinge we get now. Glad you got your knee sorted out and it wasn't anything sinister xxx
There are so many things this could be, so please phone your GP and get an appointment. A while ago I had really bad pains which I thought were in my knee cap/joint, but it turned out to be a frozen muscle and trapped nerve in my upper leg, so nothing to do with my knee and a course of acupuncture soon put the muscle right.

I was diagnosed with BC almost 4yrs ago but over the last 2 weeks I have developed an intermittent discomfort under the right hand side of my rib cage and an ache and shooting pains down my left thigh.I was diagnosed with a suspected rib fracture on the same side,nearly 2yrs ago and have been fine since this healed. This may sound slightly bizarre but I have also found that my pubic bone on the same side also hurts and feels bruised to the touchJust wondered what this could be or if anyone has anything similar
