i [COLOR=Red]deleted[/COLOR] have been having knee problems for the past 2 years.. my knees crack constantly and i have pain when running. or walking up stairs.. they also give out when i run and i fall.. i have put on 20lbs in the past 2 years because i cant do physical work or i have knee pain.. whats the cause of all this? is there anything i can do to fix it? or should i see a doctor?
I'm having the same problems as you in both of my knees. I am 30 years old and I don't know if I'm overweight or not. I think I am. I'm 5'2 and I weigh 118 pounds. Anyway, my knees crack too and hurt constantly. Stairs are the worst and I wouldn't even attempt running. I had x-rays done and it showed Osteopenia in both of my knees. My doctor said Osteopenia is the beginning stages of Osteoporosis. The only advice they gave me was to take more calcium. I can't get back the bone density I've already lost, but I can hopefully slow it down. The problem is that Osteopenia isn't supposed to cause pain. I have an appt. with an Orthopedic doctor next week. I'll let you know what I find out. I know you hate doctors but I really think you should see one. Maybe they will find out what is causing your pain. I don't think it's your weight since you said you only gained the weight because you weren't as active since your knees started hurting. Please see a doctor and let me know what you find out hon. Good luck. :)
