My knees keep popping and cracking every time i move. I cant go down stairs without them giving out on me. When i put my hand on my kneecaps they just constantly pop and its like their rubbing against bone or something. They pop so loud when i go up stairs that anyone near me can hear them cracking and popping. They dont swell they only hurt when i have to walk alot or any time i have to go up or down stairs. Which is very often? Any suggestions to might be wrong?????
i have had this for years my doctor told me it could be the start of artheristis,no scan was done as he said it wouldnt pick that up,and as long as there is no swelling or burning sensation that is what it probably is,hope this helps
