Sharp knee pain when bearing weight
I'm new here, but hope someone has an idea of what this could be. I am in my mid 50's and have had both my knees replaced. The right one was done about 14 years ago, the left one was about 7 years ago. I have had little problem with either knee since surgery. When I got up this morning I almost fell when I put weight on my left leg. The pain in my left knee was horrible. I tried working through it thinking it was just stiff from sleeping, but it has not improved. It doesn't hurt unless I put weight on it, and then it's an excruciating sharp pain on the right side of the knee only. I have never had anything like this before, even before it was replaced. Any suggestions as to what it may be?

Check your knee and try to find sensitive point,if you find it,do gentle massage yourself...
If pain constant.you would see specialist.
Take care!
