Re: Teenage boy having knee pains!!! :(
I have an idea of what you might have, one of my girlfriends sons who plays alot of sports (a really active teen) started having knee pains like you had described. The doctors told them he had osteochondritis, an inflammation of the cartilage. It's a fairly rare condition but not altogether unheard of. It typically happens in teens when they are physically active. He had gotten surgery done, pins inserted into the knees. The good news is that he still remains very active playing hockey, soccer, cycling..the only thing is he still has trouble running for long periods of time. So really look into it, go to a doctor and see what's going to help you most.
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
