My knees hurt, especially when the weather turns cold. Woke up yesterday morning my left knee was as swollen as a baseball, my right knee has been painful for many years, after a broken leg at 27 I started walking on the outside of my foot, which messed up my back, my hips, ankle and foot.
I was diagnosed with gout, my knee gets red, swollen and hot and the pain is hard to tolerate.

My daughter has had knee problems for years. She saw a therapist who told her to stop locking her knees while she was standing. I found that it is a problem for many people, myself included. I sometimes make a conscious effort not to lock them while standing in long lineups.

Knee paincan be one of the most cripplng because the knee supports the whole body.It is a complex joint.Have had a complete knee replaceent and another one pending.The meniscus had worn completely from wear and tear and the tendons and ligaments suffer..mainly job related (Building) so arthritis sets in.But boy,is it good to get rid of the pain after the op.
