When I am trying to stand up, I feel pain in my thigh muscle particular near the knees. I am also having a difficulty in going upstairs since I can even lift my foot so I need to hlod on to something and use my arms for support on using the stairs.

    This could possibly be related to my condition, McArde Disease. But you don't go give us much information. How old are you? When did this start? Is it all the time or only intermittent? Did you have any previous history of muscle issues? What country do you live it?

      I am 25 years old and I am alrady experiencing this condition 3 days from now. This is the first time I have muscle-related health condition. Im from the Philippines. What I am doing now is getting enough leg exercise even though it really hurts and it's improving I guess.

    Hi Jeffrey, for 2 months i have had pain around both knees which feels to be in muscles and cartldge. I too had difficulty getting up stairs and had to pull myself up using the bannister. Despite blood tests and x ray i am no nearer finding the cause. My leg muscles are sore to touch.
