:confused: I hope those of you with knee problems can help...several months ago I moved wrong in my office chair (chair too low) and twisted my right knee. I guess I favored the left leg and walked a bit differently. A week later, I developed a weakness in the right knee and then both knees became week. I wore knee supports for about 3 months and started to get a tingling feeling on the bottoms of my feet. Saw a PT and was told to not wear them and start an exercise program that focused on knee conditioning. I still have weak knees...no pain...just weak knees. Went to a rheumatoid doctor (bone scan, blood tests) and was told I should just continue to exercise...no signs of arthritis. Well...I still have weak knees...went to an orthopedic surgeon and was told I have Chondromalacia Patellae. Was told to exercise for 1 month, see a neurologist and see again in one more month. I began to search the Net today and everyone with this condition talks about pain that's associated with this condition. I don't have any pain or stiffness...just a weakness in the knees...I am not an athlete, nor am I on my feet constantly...what steps should I follow to get properly diagnosed? I hate to hobble around for another month...Please help!
