Your symptoms could be related to restless limb syndrome, but at your age I would recommend you consult your doctor regarding peripheral vascular disease especially if you are or have been a smoker, are being treated for coronary artery disease or are diabetic.

I have had an xray on both my knees and was told I have bone spurs and bone islands in my knees. It is painful to walk up or down stairs, help?

See below

Knee
It sounds like you have osteoarthritis. There are things that can be done to reduce pain and first would include doing exercises to build up your hamstrings and quadriceps of your legs. Medications such as NSAIDs may be helpful. Injections of cortisone or drugs such as injectable synvisc maybe helpful. Arthroscopy of the knee sometimes are done to clean out the knee. OTC supplements also helpful

Dr. Sourendra raut answered:

Knees were numb, very painful,tingling&had to walk down stairs sideways for weeks. Didnt see doc, but pain lessened. Ran yesterday now knees feel odd.

Hard to say

Extremity-joint-knee
Pain or odd feelings in the knee, including numbness, swelling, catching, clicking are often signs of cartilage, ligament or meniscal issues in the knee. If this problem has persisted over a significant period of time (>2wks), a visit to your local orthopedic surgeon would allow for further investigation.

Severe knee pain when I get up&down from any seat,up&down stairs,&trying to get off the floor is nearly impossible.my knees shake it hurts so bad.

Unusual

Knee
Late teenage female with severe bilateral knee pain with range of motion has an unusual problem. Absent a history of bilateral knee injury, these symptoms suggest an autoimmune arthritic problem or an inherited problem of Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. A Rheumatologist would be the type of medical specialist to consult.

I have osteoarthritis in my knees but for 1 yr 4 minths I have had from right knee down stay swollen now it it up to hip and painful and tingling?

See your doctor

Hip
This could represent a blood clot in your leg. The fact that it is one sided and rapidly changing is what I find concerning.

Dr. Scott Graham answered:

My knees make a creaking/popping sound when I extend my leg. It is sometimes painful to walk down stairs. I exercise and eat well. What can I do?

A few things

Knee_pain
You have Chondromalacia Patella. This is an early degenerative problem of the cartilage on the back of the patella and the stress with up and down activities causes grinding under the kneecap. The best treatment options are icing, hamstring and quad stretching, avoid stairs/lunges/squats and activity modification.
