Hi Cyclist

Difficult one, given that you've actually seen a physio and they haven't been able to sort it out. Diagnosing online is just about impossible. What does the physio suspect? I presume they have tried to treat the pain, but they must surely have a diagnosis for you?

It sounds like perhaps meniscus, but it is strange that it doesn't bother you at all during exercise. Again, I hate to pass the buck, but the physio you are seeing is the best person to diagnose, and you might want to lean on them more, because they can assess when the pain occurs and do some tests to diagnose the problem.

Good luck
