I have had knee pain for 4 days now. I woke up last Friday with sore knee. When I bend my leg the pain is in the front of the knee just below the knee cap. When I walk I only have slight pain but when I rest and then get out of a chair the pain is there.

I fell but my knee didn't hurt until next morning. It is stiff and sore in front and the back of knee, going down outside of leg to ankle that tingles. Pain is constant and sometimes severe. I have osteoporosis. I don't know if I tore a muscle tendon or something. It has been 7 days and is getting more painful and stiffer every day.

I had my right knee scoped last year. I am now experiencing pain on the top outside of the knee. There is some swelling, tender to touch and pain on the back going from thigh to lower leg. The calf is also tight.

I have knee pain after driving for three hours. I only have pain when standing or walking. No swelling or signs of inflammation. I only experience pain when putting weight on knee or trying to stand or walk.

I had a torn cartilage which was trimmed and they took 30 percent away. That was on 18th December 2014. I have been back to the surgeon and my doctors and the knee pain is excessive. I take morphine patches and codeine tablets. It doesn't relieve the pain at all. I wear a knee support and still it pains. Doctors say all is fine, I know it's not.

My knee pain began with frog kick when knee would lock up with sharp pain on bend part of kick on the right knee. I could poke right side of the knee and find the sore spot. Now it hurts to sit down on a low chair and sometimes on the loo. Walking on beach is still okay as it is forward motion. I want to do a camel safari and not sure if I need to wait. Also wondering if it is cancer or usual wear and tear. I used to ride kick start motorcycles so it is maybe from that use.
