I have had pain in both knees for about a week now. I can hardly stand to bend my knees..like when I sit down..they do hurt some even when I am standing or sitting, but not as bad as when i start to sit down. I have had 2 back surgeries..the last in 2004. I have gained about 30 pounds in the last year. I have never had knee problems, and am wondering if it could be coming from my back .
Have you been tested for Osteoarthritis? About 10 yrs ago I woke up one night to not one but two swollen knees. I was sore when I went to bed but I thought it was because I had overdone my exercising earlier that day.
I could not bend my knees at all and standing/walking sent the must excruciating pain through my knees. Went to ER and was told that I had an advanced stage of Osteoarthritis.
Always ignored the mild knee pain for years because I only noticed it after working out and assumed it was from that...
