Okay, I am kind of a wimp when it comes to needle and MD office pain (bad IV experience where they fished around for the vein with needle in arm)

How much does it hurt to have your knee drained, and did it help heal your knee faster? If I had my knee drained today, would I be 100% to race on the 29th?

Thanks

I have had my knee drained several times in the past and many years ago, but have never had any races or competitions of any sort in a short time frame following the draining. What I do remember was that it was a big- needle, the original poke was a pain, but the second the cocktail sauce was out of my knee, It felt like a million bucks. I want to say, I was back to playing some basketball and volleyball within a couple of days

I've never had my knee drained but did have to have a cortisone injection into it.  Doctor used a spray on local anesthetic and I did not feel a thing as the needle went in, just some pressure when he injected the med.  These guys are good, so go for it!

I can train for half marathons on pavement and on trails, but as soon as I change it up to gravel or loose dirt my knee swells and the pain it causes is unreal. Any ideas why this happens?

Woke up at 7am and physically could not walk. Pain was shooting in my knee (almost dropped me to my knees). Later I went to my sports doc. He could not simulate the pain whatsoever.

I have a very annoying pain under my knee cap. It does not hurt when I run or ride. It hurts a lot when I swim and when I walk up or down stairs. The pain is a searing pain. Help!

I just completed my first Ironman season and I was free of injuries. I am now just messing around when I run at a fast pace (for me), I get a shooting pain in my right knee.

So lately when I run after about 3 miles I get a nasty pain on the outside of my knee area. I have been assuming it is IT band syndrome? What can I do to help this?

The long runs, before your training was up to speed, likely started-up some overuse injury. Inflammation occurred in the front part of your knee where the extensor mechanism of your knee functions.
