And the verdict is...

...Runner's Knee! It was totally expected, so it wasn't a shocker. Dr. Bakman confirmed that my hips are tight (the main reason for my beginning yoga practice) and decided that my really tight right hip is most likely the reason behind my knee issues. He almost made me cry by jabbing my hip, but it was partially tears of joy because I am getting closer to solving this long-lasting knee problem!!! I'm taped up with the kinesiotaping method, some style from Japan, and I'm going to go for a run tomorrow to see how it feels. Then I go back to Dr. Bakman on Friday to be sure that it's my hip and figure out where to go from here. I just want to be able to run fast and far. I finally figured out my shoulder issue, and I'm good to go for climbing, so running is next! Hopefully I'll be pain free VERY soon :)
