I believe the solution to your bad knee is to EXHALE strongly while throwing a second run 171 gram blue ESP Surge on uphill blind anhyzer holes.

If not then you may have an iliotibial band problem. No really, (really) there are a bunch of youtube sites which have stretches for IT Band problems. An IT Band inflammation causes significant pain to the outside of the knee, especially when walking up or down stairs, hills, etc. The stretches may not help but probably won't hurt (much)((maybe)).

Good luck.
I've heard of IT Band Inflamation before. Heck that could be all it is.

I get that from straddle putting, sharp/stabbing pain from my hip joint to the outside knee joint. Foam roller is my friend and stretching.

I think I'll stick to rotating on the ball of my foot as I hardly feel any pain from it.
Sounds like you rotated trough something in your knee over the years ( like scratching off part of the bone on one side or smthng ), and that is hurting now. You are now shifting the point where you rotate, and will rotate trough the next thing in your kney in the next few years. I give you 10 years tops till you need a artificial knee to even walk.

Or you could like go see a doctor. Not that I care, but that's what people who want to get better do.

I almost forgot. You reminded me. I also have Sciatica. My Sciatic nerve flares up sometimes.

I had shingles when I was 26 and it messed up some nerves where my Sciatic nerve is at. It stinks man.

I should go see a doctor about that knee,but I'm gonna give it a few more months to see if it's just something I can fix myself with stretching,foam roller and the lot.

Does it hurt when you walk up stairs or down?

Only when it is already hurting.

When it's not hurting I feel no pain going up and down stairs.

I was about to start the same thread today, but did a search first to make sure I did not get "Prerubed".

I hurt my knee this past winter snowboarding. It did not bother me until I started playing more disc golf as the weather warmed.

Went to doctors and I have a small tear in the cartilage in my knee. I was told to take it easy for a month or so and it could repair itself. That was working until I had to help my parents move. Twisted knee again and is very swollen. I may go and get it checked by a knee specialist.

Long story short - Get a brace, take it easy and if it does not start to feel better in a month, see a doctor.

I throw exclusively from a standstill on backhand shots because of major knee problems and surgeries. Ever since I adopted the style I almost never have knee pain because I am able to put most of my weight into my good knee. It's certainly worth trying for a few rounds to see if it has any impact. It shouldn't lessen your enjoy ability of the game after a little while, and could potentially add a lot to your sustainability of keeping it up.

Looks like I will be facing knee surgery myself. Haven't been to the doctor yet but I have been down this road with the same pain before. I will go get the MRI in the next month or so and schedule the surgery for this winter. This has really taken the wind out of my disc golf sails the last few months...

I've had a ruptured Achilles tendon and damaged/dislocated both knees thanks to rugby. I tend to blow off shoulder pain but knee pain scares the crap out of me. I always rest up as much as possible when the knee hurts. it's one of the few things that'll get me to go back to the doctor. If my knees go, I'm screwed.
Go. To. Your. Doctor.
That is, if you have insurance and can afford one....
