Patient :Hi, I'm a 18 year old female and I'm 5 foot 8 inches and 116 lb. I occasionally have pain in my knees, typically after walking a ton, but sometimes just randomly. It doesn't have too frequently anymore, but for a little bit about a year and a half ago, it was mildly consistent. Now it just happens every once in a while. I do know a couple years back my doctor was examining my legs and asked about pain and I panicked and said no. (I was about 15 or 16 then) Anyway, I always have this fear that something bigger is wrong, but every time I mention it to someone they just say it was cause I was walking too much or something. Should I be worried?
