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

My father has knee pain.His work makes him stand for many hours. The doctor advised just to have more rest. But its hard for him to do so. Advise plz.
Difficult when: Work is needed but pain is constantly there. I would suggest asking if there is anyway to sit during work.

I am 18 years old, been having knee pain for almost my entire life. The pain is in the backs of my knees and radiates down my shin. What could this be?
Hard to say: Knee pain your entire life would tend to mean that it is not an acute or progressive problem like a fracture, ligament injury, muscle tear or even tumor.

There are long lists of things that it could be but you really need to see a specialist like an orthopedic surgeon who can examine your knee and do images to get a better answer ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
