Jumper’s Knee — Apparently laying on the couch watching highly trained Olympians makes one prone to such a malady, which must by why I have Jumper’s Knee. It’s just a fancy way to say ‘tendonitis of the knee’. I think I ended up with it in a not so fancy way — being flat-footed with not enough arch support in my shoes. It’s painful, so I’m on large doses of anti-inflammatories, that can’t keep up with the inflammation, resulting in what appears to be a bunion or golf ball protruding off the side of my knee. I would be more impressed if the name were Prayer’s Knee.
