I had a similair issue when training for a marathon - turns out it was related to the iliotibial band - I got a foam roller, and did some myofascial release work and that helped alot.

I used that injury to make sure i wasnt suffering tightness anywhere else, as I was told it was probably those sorts of muscular imbalances in my legs that caused it in the first place.

You sure you have the right trainers? I have this problem but asics sort it out.

Have an uncle who run for his country & now does marathons etc and he is always bangin on about how each manufacturer of running shoe makes them slightly different so for instance adidas running shoe may in theory be great but we fuck up ya knees if you hit the floor in a way unsuited to them

It is often caused by tensed muscles on the outside and/or wrong hip posture (hip tilted forward - as in tailbone out) - esp. I see you're into MT with legkicks, that can make the muscles outside stiff, which can pull on the knee and cause constant pull and tension on the inside ligaments. get your leg muscles unstiffened (see Simon's suggestion or get a good massage), fix your hip posture (strengthen lower abs, stretch psoas), and make sure you get enough Magnesium in your diet.

Hey Andras, what is the magnesium for?

Have some issues with knee at minute, and doing usual stretches and roller work.
