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.

Started exercising and doing squats. The last two days I've had painful knots in the front, top part of both legs (5 in above knees)Hurts to stand/sit?

Slow down

Pain
Sudden start of squats will put lot of stretch in the Quadriceps muscle in front of your thigh. it is possible to get micro tear of some of the muscle fibers that can lead to swelling an knots in the thigh. If you take it easy it should resolve in time. if the knots and the pain does not go away in couple of weeks then you need to see your doctor Good luck
