    I would suggest a visit to your doctor.

    I used to think that was a natural part of aging, and maybe it is. But if it's causing some pain your best bet would be to have it checked, at least in my opinion.

    Good luck.

      I thought that too but am only 34 this year so didnt think it would be happening yet! 

      Doctor says wear and tear and to use weights to strengthen the knee, I am not convinced!

    I would suggest having a proper exam and diagnosis. Sometimes early diagnosis and treatment, possibly physical therapy, can delay what most of us on here have gone through. You didn't mention your age, occupation and current activity level but all of that could play into your a situation

      Im 34, work in an office, have been active but stopped due to the knee issue - scared incase I do more damage. 

      Doctor said wear and tear and to strengthen with weights but not convinced.

      I would want help from a trained therapist or trainer before jumping into a program. Its true you have to work to rebuild but too much will do Mir harm than good and too little is a waste of time and money. Generally its a start slow and light and a o to up. Complete inactivity will just cause more deterioration. I'm 78 and in my 5th time over the last 11 years of doing a total rebuild and it isnt fun or easy but can be done. The longer you put it off the closer you will be a cripple in high levels of pain

      Make sure the saddle is ar the right hight.too high and your back suffers

      Too low and your knees get it.

      Whether it's right or not but cycling is supposed to get blood flowing to the lateral cartilages and off course builds the quads.

      I havent got a turbo bike so I'm weather reliant on getting my bikes out

      I had an arthroscopy 12 months ago to get rid of the mild pain I was having.

      Since then the pain has gone a lot worse

      I'm seeing my doctor on Monday about the results of an mri scan

      I've been getting aches in my hip too and because I had a replacement in 2008 I was worried I'd need a new one.

      I had my 12 months check up today on my hip.operated hip and other one are both fine.

      The surgeon said leave off having a knee replacement as long as you can as they don't work as well as a hip replacement.

      I'd sooner go down the physio route anyway, how about you?!

      I heard the doctors put off knee replacements as much as possible. My partner had an op on his knee to fix a bucket tear and touch wood has been ok. He will never use it like he did but it's better now and no pain. A little stiff but when exercised loosens up.

      I myself will leave any ops until I can't bare pain. Like I said it's only the noise it makes that scares me at the moment.

      Sounds like you have been through a lot what with your hip too.

      I got a shock when the doctors told me hip was kaput.

      I was 46 and enjoying distance running but took up cycling which I'm sure helped get some more life out of the hip

      The surgeons encouraged me to cycle anyway.

      Does your knee have that catching feeling??

      That's not good news to hear is it, especially if your enjoying running.

      The surgeons encouraged my partner to cycle after his knee op.

      My knee just feels and sounds like something bad is going to come. I will probably re visit the doctors after Christmas.

      You may get away with just building your quads up.

      Is the side of your knee sore to touch??

      I used to run with the kids I coach at a boxing club but I jacked the running in over a year ago

      I sometimes follow them on my bike
