Arthritis like pain
Im 22 yr old male. I have been suffering from chronic pain in both my knees for the last two years. At times there are clicking sounds when i stretch my knees. Also i f i climb too many stairs, drive a lot, or sit on the ground for too long, they get swollen and then ache like hell. I have been to many orthos, rheumatologists and physiotherapists but no one has been able to eliminate the problem. I have also taken a lot of NSAIDS and stuff but no marked difference. Lately i have stopped taking drugs and started working on my quads and hamstrings. This has paid dividends as my knees ache a lot less. But the problem is that the pain is still there if i exert too much.
I also have elevated uric acid levels, high cholesterol, and elevated liver enzymes. I am also very much overweight for my age and height (198 lbs on 5`9 1/2). I do not exercise and lead a largely sedentary lifestyle.
These two years have been very frustrating for me and they have taken the toll on my emotional and psychological health. I suffer from mild depression and also have sleepless nights.
I want to step out from this mess and lead a perfectly life like i did before. Please help me out by giving suggestions as to what i can do. Also is there any good supplements in the market which can alleviate the sitaution (i am really sick of all drugs). Thanks
