I experienced pains in both my legs between the knee and downwards. I went for testing and I found that I have arthritis.

My husband's has RA. He is 45yrs old has had this for seven yrs. It has recently showed up in his lungs. Stop smoking and stay on the medications your doctor gives you, and when to take them. Listen to your doctor, or you will be in more pain than you should be.

I was walking and my knee suddenly cracked and then there was pain. I could hardly walk. The pain was on the side of my knee on the outside. I could not even lift my leg to get it the car. I cried, the pain was so bad. I stand 3 hours a day as a cashier.
