I am a fairly active 41 year old with 2 young boys who keep me very busy. I have a good diet.
I have had knee pain in both knees for a few years and have taken cod liver oil to help lubricate.
Over the past 3/4 months on no particular activity, time or over exertion, my knee has crunched then an excruciating sharp pain goes through my knee and it gives way. I collapse to the floor or have to grab on to something.
Immediately I can grab my knee and hold it to my chest without pain but if I try to straighten it or put any weight on it, the pain is intense.
My Doctor has never actually examined it but tells me I need more excercise to strengthen it? I have 2 young boys, exercise is not an issue.
I rarely visit the Doctor and have no other medical concerns.
I sometimes feel a real fraud as I can walk into a store or the zoo limping in agony as my knee has just given way and 30 minutes later I can hop and skip out of there. It is usually back to normal within 2 hours but the frequency of this occurring is now becoming
Hope someone has some ideas, Thank you, Melenie
