Does anyone else suffer from knee problems, pain etc, but with no swelling whatsoever?

Ever since I can remember having knee problems - my knee(s) have never swollen up - maybe that is why previous doctors never thought there was anything wrong with my knee(s)!

Hi LIzzie

My knees barely swell up and even then i think it is still from my surgery in june (the OS said it may take about a year for the sweelign to disappear).  Other than that no my joints dont swell but still hurt

I never have any swelling, just pain and loss of functional ability. In fact, my knee exam is almost normal, until I am weight bearing, then I lose all kinds of function. I think it makes it harder for me to have the doctors understand how much pain and limitations I have. It's one of those things that doesn't make a lot of sense to them.
