In brief: Many causes get seen

The knee can hurt moving side to side for a variety of reasons.
Your meniscus in your knee can be injured causing pain, your ligaments can be strained, you can have a stress fracture of your femur or tibia, your muscle insertions can be inflamed, you can have an inflammatory arthritis. Less likey but other causes: gout, lyme disease, recent illness, tumor. Get seen by orthopedic surgeon.

In brief: Stress in ligaments

Pain and stress starts with ligaments first (sign of body toxins) indirectly affecting thyroid and metabolism so holistic rx put yourself on greentea pulls the toxins eliminates thyroid stress if u don't will eventually lead to restrict joint movement and start the process of arthritis.
