Either way, because you've had pain for several weeks it does deem looked into.
Thank you Kissa! (I think...) You mentioned Gout, which made me research the topic a little. I learned right away that people who have Gout almost always have a sore big toe. Well, I didn't mention it but - guess what? Yep, I have a sore big toe too!
I have never had gout before, or if I have it wasn't serious enough to notice. My guess is that I do have a bout with Gout (excuse the pun). That would explain why both my knees hurt, knowing I didn't damage them...and also why my big toe (on right foot) hurts too. My toe started hurting at the same time my knees started hurting.
Now I need to find out how best to rid my body of the excess Uric acid I have that causes Gout.
Again, thank you for mentioning that my problem may be Gout. The symptoms of Gout fits perfectly with what I'm experiencing.
