Hi, I'm 24 years old and for the last couple of years, after I walk a few blocks or go up the stairs my knees look like they have sunburn. They turn red and hot, this causes a slight pain (sometimes bothers me a little)...usually i put some ice on them or lay down for a while and that usually does the trick, but lately this problem is happening more often...
i would like to know why this might be happening

Thanks in advance

  • i know some hockey players that have had to have surgery because they banged their knees up too much. one symptom they had was that they could hear their knees grinding and cracking when they pushed themselves up and down while standing. they also had severe pain and had to go on painkillers. they both had surgery and had to go on painkillers for a while. i don't know if any of this applies to you but if you have banged your knees up a lot you might want to get an x-ray, especially if you are experiencing pain..
