About a year ago I went out with some friends to shoot a film at night when it snowed heavy and the ground was very icy. I was walking around with friends making the film for hours. I dont remember injuring myself, but that night I woke up during the night with terrible pain in my knees. I could hardly walk for a few days the pain was so bad. I had to get taxi's places because I couldn't walk very well. i wondered if I had been walking awkwardly because of the snow/ice.
Since then, Once or twice when I have been walking for a long period of time (a few hours say), the pain has come back. And just a few days ago, I noticed both my knees being painful in the night and waking me up in agony. I haven't been doing lots of walking though. The pain seems to be deep inside the knee and a general knee ache (very painful ache tho), not a tagetted pain in one small spot.
Could this be artheritis? I worry a little about that because I do have clicky hands which sometimes "click/snap" loudly when doing things and sometimes the snaps can be painful in my hands/wrists. But I am only 28 and slim.
I do excercis at home with weights and have recently started doing some lunges as part of my leg routine - which may have brought the pain back?
