I am a 15 year old female. I do gymnastics twice a week and swimming every weekday. The past few weeks I have been experiencing pain more often than usual in both my knees(usually only one knee will hurt at a time). For the past 2 years I've had occasional knee locking but it would only happen maybe once every 3 months for an hour. but now it's almost everyday and even though it won't completely lock up like before, it will still hurt and the pain will get worse as I walk on it to the point of where it will completely lock. I will try my best to sit down before the pain gets worse but sometimes I am not near a chair or bed. The pain usually lasts for an hour. Even when I sit down my knee will still hurt until it's had an hour to rest. I don't know what's going on. I know that gymnastics is probably making it worse because swimming doesn't hurt it at all. I know it would be good to quit gymnastics but it's my passion and I would like some other options before I am o my left with the choice to quit.i just want some answers on what it may be so I could bring that up when I go to the doctors soon.
