Does anyone have any idea what causes the old buckling knees trick ? I've been experiencing this for about two months , it started with one buckle/dip once in awhile .. now it happens whenever I stand in one place, I have four or five buckles/dips, kind of a bounce motion . It probably looks pretty weird. I don't fall , but it feels like I easily could .
Will this most likely progress into something I have to be concerned about and watchful of ? I did tell my neuro's P.A. who said nothing much.
I get that knee buckle at unpredictable times - sometimes walking, sometimes standing still. I always think I'm going to be in trouble with my knee swelling or something else but it seems to recover pretty quick. Its always in my weak leg, the right. - Lulu
For me there are two causes to my knees buckling. The first is the severe weakness in quadriceps. When I am trying to stand from a slight crouch (cleaning out cat boxes) or when standing up out of my chair my thighs just won't hold my wieght and allow me to straighten my knees.
The second has to do with the spasticity of my right leg. Sometimes, usually when I am stepping down and not paying attention, my right knee will SNAP backwards (hyper as I put my weight on it and then buckle from the pain. My extensors are spastic and the leg just goes awry. hate it!
