Okay, so I've never done this before... my apologies if I'm not to do this on these forums... but here goes...

As a child growing up, I've had pains in my knees. Those typical growing pains that so many children get. But then, in eighth grade, I stopped growing. I was 6'0" in when I was 12, and I'm still in that height now at age 17.

But these "growing pains" haven't stopped; they've gotten worse. Now, I get pain especially in my thigh, but also in my knee and ankle. Usually, it's just on the right side. Also, sometimes the pain is so great I can't focus on anything and cannot complete any work and must go to bed.

I'm not horribly worried; I'm fairly sure that some prescribed shoe inserts would fix the issue, but I'm just curious.
