  • Slithering feeling.....

    Yes, a slithering feeling, in my patellar tendon, shin, and calf on my left leg. I have NO pain whatsoever, but throughout the day I will feel a slithering feeling in these areas. It almost feels like my tendons are moving around. I was doing weighted bench step ups and it felt like sweat was running down my shin, but I looked, and there was nothing. It comes and go's. What the F is this? The only thing I can think of is some type of tension somewhere (hip, quad, hamstring) that is pulling on my tendon? I'm getting sick of these things popping up, I'm 27!

        Most likely a small muscle or part of a muscle contracting or twitching. Supplemental magnesium might help if that's the case, or more rest between workouts. Might need a massage to loosen up some knots that are pushing on a nerve. Could be a lot of things.

          I think it has to be something along those lines! It started in the other knee today. If it was painful I would go see a doctor, but like I said, no pain, thankfully. The hubby massaged the crap out of the bottom half of the vastus lateralis muscle and it loosened up for a few hours. Foam roller on that part of my quad hurt so I am guessing its tight! Thanks!

            Kind of "funny", my left knee is bothering me, too. In two weeks I can see a doc. It is hurting around my knee, feeling like I must stretch my quads all the time or the knee is locked and pain is walking around the kbee cap. There is a point that hurts when I press above the knee cap. Although it feels like I could squat I do not. I am afraid of hurting and making things worse...try to train around until I know what's going on. Weird!

              You may have some tendonitis, especially since there is a specific point of pain. My workout felt fine this morning, no pain, a little bit of the weird feeling, but not painful. I feel like I need to stretch my shin all day though, which is really hard to do!

                I think you should see a doctor
                I feel so isolated as every day I search for others like me, I havn't found them yet but I will one day...

                  This was resolved! I was overstretching hamstrings and under stretching my quads. Tight quad muscles were pulling the tendons and muscles around my knee - thus the slithering feeling. At least this is the conclusion I have come to.
