Get evaluated: If your older and get knee pain when you sit idle for a while, this is commonly found with wear down of the cartilage of the knee which is called osteoarthritis. Getting up hurts and the first 10-20 steps are more achey, but improves with more walking. This is the common story of patients with osteoarthritis. But you must get a checkup and evaluated with an xray to ensure proper diagnosis.
