    Progressive Knee Pain and Locking

    It's almost my 3nd year with the continuous knee pain, in both knees. It started with pains when I ran, when up stairs, squat et al. I am 15 year of age. I was 13 when it started so I understood why they called it "growth pains" but when I turned fourteen, 7 month later my right knee locked. We took an xray of the knee and I was given a stilt to wear for a week. And I thought that was the last of it. And 3 month after that it reoccurred. And the pains became progressively larger and more painful. Then they took blood samples for rheumatoid arthritis, nothing. And 5 months later I was up to my 3rd knee lock, all in the right knee. So we visited a specialist and of course he recommended an MRI. He thought it was an ACL or Chondromalacia.. Or a meniscus tear. But all tests came clear, except my knee cap was a little higher than it should be, but that a little physiotherapy could fix it. So I did my physiotherapy. But I got tired after almost 2 years of playing mystery diagnosis. I am now fifteen and its gotten so bad I can only cross my legs if I'm lucky, cause there is a locking feeling when I do, in both knees. I can't bend the knees for a SHORT period of time because I'm in pain and scared they'll lock. I'm constantly silently in pain. This has become such a part of me that I don't even complain of how much pain I'm in. But that wasn't the end of it. The pain has now begin to progress in my hips! Now I'm not sure if this is growing pains but it is by me when I walk, stand leaning on a leg for too long. Please some one simply help me understand this because I have had enough. It's come to a point where severe pain is a part of my life.

    Also I have a grinding sensation when I bend the knee, or cracking.
