Arthritis in knee? TMJ related?
I've always had cracking sounds in my knees when I bent down. However, in this past week I've had more cracking sounds and a feeling of looseness in my knees. Then I started experiencing more discomfort. I was really feeling it after standing up for 4 hours in my biochem lab. My knees were so painful I was surprised I could walk home. In any case, I was just wondering if this is indicative of knee arthritis. I've already been diagnosed with TMJ (my joints show wear, probably due to osteoarthritis as I have bilateral disk displacement).
I doubt my knee is hurting from strenuous activity as I only run 3 miles a week on the weekends.
Please post if you have any comments or suggestions. I appreciate any feedback.
Oh yeah...another tidbit that might be helpful...I'm definitely not overweight so this can't be a factor (I'm 5'8 and 135 lbs).
