I'm in my 40s. I don't really exercise (other than housework and walking). I have not injured my knees, but suddenly they both hurt. Why?

In brief: Knee pain
Knee pain can be from weight, arthritis, ligament injury, water on the knee, or referred pain from hips or your feet.
Make sure you have new work out shoes that accomodate any turning of your feet, you stretch and perhaps wear a support while working out, ice after. If not better see your doctor or a sports medicine physician.
