Re: What Arthritis in the knee looks like

I take it you think you may be developing arthritis in your knee and you want to know what it feels like and what the knee itself should look like.

Well, I injured my knee at 14 and had arthritis by the time I was your age. It hurt a lot...just ached. Sometimes it would swell and look bigger than the other knee. When it was swollen, it felt a little like you had Jello inside the knee and it was unstable. When I sat down, it would be hard to straighten when I stood up....like it had gone stiff and had to take it's time getting straight again.

Is that anything like what you are experiencing?

Jenny
