orthotics/flat feet/runner's knees help!

From: Jing
Sent on: Wednesday, March 10, 2010 3:18 PM
I randomly started getting runnner's knee this year. I rolled my left?ankle last September pretty bad, so I took 3 months off to let it?fully heal. I started running again in January and?after running 3 miles?each day for 3 days, I started getting knee pain/tightness.?To be on the super safe side, I took?6 weeks and did a lot of stretching in between. I went out for a mile run two weekends ago and it is still there. The pain/tightness starts on my outside bottom left knee (the same side as my ankle roll), then it spreads to the entire outside knee. I know I over-pronate since my feet are as flat as the floor. I can barely fit a coin under my "arch", but this knee thing never happened to me before. Not even when I?run 10-20miles.
I got new shoes( Brooks) and?been using the foam roller thing, both of them didn't work. I can't even walk all day?when I went?to SF.
So now, I'm looking to buy some orthotics and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations and/or experiences?with over-the-counter or custom orthotics. Any brands, online websites, or doctor I can visit for a pair. I'm looking?for a?good quality pair of orthotics. i don't care much about the price, as long as it is reasonable.
Thanks for your time!
