My knees hurt when i sleep

My knees have started hurting sporadically when i sleep. The onset is a bit like cramp. They sometimes hurt when i cycle and always when i've been kneeling or sat on chairs at the cinema. I have no known bone disease but they have always been quite weak. We have arthritis in the family.

Any ideas?

Re: My knees hurt when i sleep

My husband has hip and knee pain when lying on his side (which is how he sleeps). He finds relief by keeping a special pillow between his knees, it looks kind of like a dogbone. It has a wide elastic band on it that slips over one knee, so it doesn't get lost in the bed. I wish I could offer you more help. Good luck!

I have chondramalacia, and have had my legs hurting at night. I had found that warm baths helped. I realized they hurt worse when I wasnít very active, so I did the leg strengthen exercise. I had learned to ride a bike to where it didnít hurt to peddle, I didnít push with my knees I made my upper leg and hip do it. As I aged not much helped. I did find something that helped finally and I have been pain free for 3 years. I know someday I will need my knees replaced but I donít hurt any more. Flair up now and then.

But that is what I had done before plus warm bed or heat, and yes the pillow helps too.


Good luck
u could see a doctor too
