4yrs ago dislocated knee sitting in a chair and x-rays done to search for break, none now both knees hurt all the time feel like gunna lock?

Knee locking: The x-ray would not reveal a soft tissue injury, like a meniscus tear, but an MRI of the knee can. A meniscus tear may explain why your knee is locking. The tear can worsen as menisci have poor blood supply centrally. It may undergo degeneration, develop arthritic changes and cause more mechanical problems like giving way due to joint instability and add stress or injury to your other knee. ...Read more

I have chronic knee pain in both knees as well as stiffness; greater in the left. It sometimes is so severe that it hurts from my ankle to my pelvis.

See rheumatologist: At your age, it is unusual to have that degree of pain in so many joints. See your primary care doctor or a rheumatologist to make sure that you don't have a systemic condition. If that work up is negative, you may just have referred pain from standard knee conditions like patellofemoral syndrome. A sports med doc can take a look after the systemic work up is done. ...Read more

4 year old complained of knee pain in both knees while biking. It went away quickly after he stopped biking. Anything I should be worried about?

Probably not: He may have been using some new muscles (in different ways than usually). Any new activity can sometimes cause some muscle strains. If he is walking fine and able to move around easily, just keep an eye on him. If he keeps limping for a day or so, has a fever, or seems sick, see your pediatrician. ...Read more

Knee pain in both knees over 4yrs ago left knee dislocated and nothing elese was looked at what could be wring?

Knee Pain: The strong ligaments holding the knee together must tear for a dislocation to occur. This would mean your lower leg (tibia-fibula) is displaced in relation to your femur. A partial dislocation is a subluxation, which is possibly what you had. Consult an orthopedist. Risk of re-injury with associated vascular injury can have serious consequences to the health and integrity of your limb. ...Read more

Something systemic?: Bilateral knee pain and thyroid problems doesn't ring any bells but at your age it does suggest you be worked up for something systemic going on.

There are even some viruses that can cause transient arthralgias. ...Read more

The back of my knee region on both knees is flaring up this past week. Very painful when I bend them and try to get back up. This has never happened before. Only rest helps and pain killers. They hurt even when I am sitting with my knees bent. Like I

Please: Please have this evaluated. Sometimes arthritic changes can cause symptoms such as this. There is also a condition called "baker's cyst" that can cause swelling and pain behind the knees. The most important thing to be sure you don't have is a blood clot, which would cause pain, swelling, or cramping in the calf. If you have any of those symptoms you would have to have an ultrasound to evaluate your leg immediately. An ultrasound would also show a baker's cyst. ...Read more

I'm only 24 and my knees hurt badly standing up for 2 hours or sitting on a chair for 4 hours long. What should I do?

Exercise: On the surface, what you are describing maybe as simple as patellofemoral syndrome. Females are much more commonly affected due to the geometry of the pelvis and how it affects the tracking of the knee cap when you move. I would ofcourse see a physician to be sure, but start with exercise. ...Read more
