i am 14 and i have had this pain for just over 2 years! the pain is like what most people have described stabbing pain for seconds to minutes to hours, and i can't put any weight on it!

sometimes i have had it really bad, ie. my knees have given way and i cant walk for hours. everday this week i have spent at least 10 minutes trying to get out of bed :( i feel really old. i was on crutches for 6 months when i first got it but it didnt do anything... i have seen every doctor about it, and my mums a GP... i tried steroids, but nothing helps :(
mri, cat scans x-rays show nothing

i used to do loads of sport before this, but since i got it i have gotten in to music- so i guess when one door closes another opens

when we go skiing i can ski for about 1 min and then have to stop for 2 min and go home half way through the day :(- i want a cure!!!!!

  • weird for u 2 have this pain that young. only things i know associated with joint pain that you could possibly have arevitamin deficienciessports injuries more rare because of your age:inflammatory diseases such as arthritus and lupus you need to go to a bone doctor and also a rheumatologist I would suggest you see a physiotherapist or sports doctor for an opinion. Two common causes of knee pain with difficulty weight bearing include a medial meniscal tear or lateral meniscal tear. There are however several potential causes given your symptoms, some that do not show up on an MRI. Good luck, PhysioAdvisorwww.PhysioAdvisor.com.au
