I've had this issue for over a year now... after running about a mile, I feel an ache in the "back" of my right knee (the side away from my knee cap). It seems to get worse whenever I take a step, but the ache goes away as soon as I slow to a walk. I've tried both changing my footwear (I even tried barefoot running) and changing the way I run, but nothing helps. I would really appreciate any insights or suggestions; it's frustrating not to be able to run long distances because of this issue.
EDIT: It's slightly above the joint line, more towards the outside, and fairly diffuse, but I'll try to clarify more the next time I go running. Thanks again for the help.
