Knee-does this happen to you?

Hi guys, most of you know my history-no dx as of yet.

About 3 weeks ago my right knee started to really hurt, especially in the morning. The intense pain would last about 10 min in the am to the point I could barely walk, almost felt as though it was bone on bone-no stiffness. Sometimes throughout the day it would get a lot better unless I turned my leg and its as if something would shift and the pain would start again. Went to see my dr and he did a few things and could hear it popping in and out, but my other knee did the same thing (one of my odd symptoms is very loose joints that go through phases of EXTREME popping and cracking), he thought maybe torn cartilage and it would take 6 wks to heal, but no reason as to how it could have gotten torn. I chalked it up to all the other stuff going on in my body. Well now all of a sudden it has been fine for a wk.

Have any of you experienced anything like this?

Re: Knee-does this happen to you?

You are not alone.....myself and my best friend. It all resolved within 24 hours but the severe pain that first time took my breath away and I didn't think I was going to be able to walk from my parking lot into the building. It was really weird. It is just one of those fluky things that happens and sometimes there is no explanation. Isn't the human body complicated!?
