Appointment to Children's went well. Took x-rays, started scheduling an MRI, and got to walk away with a quality knee brace.
Diagnoses as of today:
- patellofemoral pain syndrome (determined from x-rays, also known as runner's knee)
- IT band syndrome (really really tight = sad, common in long distance runners)
The MRI remains but as of now it looks like I will return to PT with my new found information and will also begin massage therapy.
Also I am officially done growing, the x-ray showed that my growth plates are pretty much fused.
