What's wrong with my knees ?


Q: So for about a year my knees have been causing me mild pain (not constant) but if I were to crouch and get up it would be a struggle and as I get up and they make a faint crack that sounds a bit like tearing. Its getting worse if I sit cross legged they begin to ache and they go stiff and sore when I straighten them out again. Right now I am laying down and my leg feels strange not a pain as such but I feeling hard to describe like a twitch like my muscles are tensing then relaxing... I'm not sure that's what is happening but its a weird feeling I can't descibe. Oh I'm 16 so erm I don't think its an age thing...

Symptoms:  Aching and stiffness
