Knee & Hip Problems Board Index


I'm a 41 year old female, average weight. Lately I've been having problems with my knee and I thought maybe someone here could help me figure out what to do.

Lately when I sit and cross my legs (sometimes when I don't cross them) and sit for a while... Well it was only when I sat for an extended time- like in a theather.... Now its after just sitting on the couch for 10 minutes. My left knee hurts so bad. When I stand I can barely bend at the knee and walking down stairs is nearly impossible. After I move around for 5 -10 minutes it feels better and it never just hurts for no reason. Only right after I stand up (or extend it)

I am not a sports person and I didn;t injure it. I don't have a physically difficult job, I'm a teacher.

Any idea what this could be, whether it is something to be concerned about, or should I just take Naprosen and realize I'm getting old?
