Knee problem
I've never had any problems with my knees until recently.  It started the other weekend when my right knee began to feel really stiff and hurt.  I thought it may be due to the fact I was tired and after a good nights sleep it didn't really hurt.  Yesterday it began to hurt at night and I figured sleeping would help.  It didn't.  It has felt stiff and hurt whenever I bend it or extend it.  Walking does not hurt, going up and down steps does.  Once I've bent it into a position (i.e. indian style) it doesn't hurt until I bend it or extend it again.

I am physically active, thin and I have no injuries.  To make things weirder, my right knee is cracking everytime I extend it (a small crack generally).  What does this sound like?  I'm a teacher and use my knees a lot, so having to bend down has been a challenge.  I'm only 26 btw.

I had something.  I had horrible pain in my meniscus and couldn't figure out why.  After over a year of off and on pain, sometimes very debilitating I discovered it was because I was sleeping with my ankles crossed.  I guess the ankle on top was putting enough pressure on my meniscus for long enough through the night that it was damaging it.  The thing is it didn't bug me when I slept, just the rest of the day which is why it was so hard to figure out.  If you're sleeping in a position that puts constant low levels of stress on your knee joint, the problem could be as simple as that.
