I have been having some trouble with my right knee recently. The part of it that faces the other leg with knees facing forward is paining me. I suspect that it was because of a twisted pistol. I also got some pain when I stood in a wide straddle. It used to be not a big deal, but now it hurts almost constantly. It doesn't hurt too bad (except at one time, but that passed). I would like to know what I should do about it.

Is the pain along the kneecap?

If so, research runner's knee, the layman term for Chondromalacia.

In the end, you should definitely see a sports doctor / orthopedist. I was diagnosed with the above and it was a combination of flat feet, weak thighs and severe muscle imbalance between my quad and hamstring.

It's maybe two inches or so beside the kneecap.
I read a little about it and it said it was a degenerative condition. I'll go do the doctor about this.

By the ways, did yours fully heal?

With 3 months of phys therapy, more or less, yes. I am up to running 3 miles straight without pain but have yet to take on a crossfit workout to test the knee under heavy, deep squats and other movements of the like. Prior to phys therapy, it was blowing up with fluid while I was sitting at work, totally unprovoked or just walking around.

It does get sore a tad if I dont ice and stretch properly after a run, but for all intents and purposes, it has improved 100%.

Maybe your knee has a slight MCL strain or tear. See what the doc says mate and hopefully it's correctable without invasive surgery.
