Most orthopedics exams are directed at identifying surgical problems. Patients are often surprised much of knee pain is poor control at the hip and ankle. Two YouTube videos review the concepts: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43Nh5aYwFnA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6SXiDCMP3E

In brief: Flatfeet?

Hopefully mommyagian is not wearing high heels.
Assuming you are not, check and see if you have flatfeet. Flatfeet will place extra stress on the inner portion of the knees. If this is the case try wearing orthotics and see if tis helps.
