Hello, I'm new. I don't know if this is directly a knee problem, but I wasn't sure where else to post it and I am in need of some help about it.
I can't seem to straighten out my legs, in any kind of stride, without exerting a lot of force to try and keep them somewhat straight. I know this is a bad way to go about it, but I don't know what to do. Standing, my knees look like they stick out a bit, but I'm never experiencing any pain in my knee. Only in my feet and lower back. I've noticed what looked like extra curvature in my back, and judging by my posture, thought that lordosis was possible. But no doctor has ever addressed it, and my mother swears up and down that I don't have a structural problem.
She could be right, but this only ever happens to the extent that it does when I'm not wearing shoes. (as it mainly happens at school, and some other public places) I can walk differently without shoes on; I usually take a toe first and bring down the whole foot.
With shoes, I'm forced to walk differently, and I can't keep my knees from bending so much, no matter what I do. I bought arch supports. Those don't help either. I really need help identifying this. It's taken a toll on me socially as well. I'm still in school, and I am constantly taunted and made fun of about it when I'm not around (or when people don't think I can hear) if anything, it's not on my agenda to care all that much, but it's emotionally taxing having to walk around calculating every step, still being made a jest for it, and knowing nothing I'm doing atm is helping. I'm worried other problems could develop from it as well. I need answers. Please help!
