A 35-year-old female asked:

When i'm standing for no reason my knee will just twist or turn that i wobble. is this just muscle fatigue or a tiny ligament tear and what to do next?

Many causes: Locking or giving way of the knee could be from a ligament tear or a cartilage tear (meniscus tear). Sounds like you should see an orthopaedic surgeon.
