new knee pain
« on: September 01, 2006, 01:26:39 AM »
My right knee has been bothering me, just started a few days ago.  I am 56, in general good health.  I am 5'7" and weigh 195#.  I know that I am over-weight.  The knee hurts, and a few times it felt almost like it was going to give out on me.  When I bend my knee like I am going to kneel, it does not hurt.  But when I try to straighten it out (exageratedly) it HURTS!!   It also hurts when I sleep and my leg is straight, so I have to slightly bend it.  Can anyone tell me what the problem MAY be...aside from the fact that I am old and overweight...??? :-[

It sounds like its probably a bit of osteoarthritis, do you knees make crunchy noises?  It could be any number of things though so you should perhaps go along and see your doc and get it checked out just to be sure.
