Knee pains for the last 5-7 months what could it be?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 14 years old and I have had a pain in my knees for the past couple of months. (5-7) Most of the time my right knee has the worst pains but recently both started hurting. Usually the inner parts of my knees are sore but other parts do hurt to from time to time aswell.mMy doctor told me that they could be growing up pains but bing forgetful like I am i didnt tell her everything. I used to turn the upper part of my body with feet planted on the ground and this was sore on my knees. I dont actually know why i did it hahaha but I think it might be this. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

    The sports and growing issues are a major factor....my grandson who is 15 has too many pains for his age and he's athletic and still growing.   J

    I would trust your Dr. You are just the age for growing pains. Your growth spurt is causing your body to put joints in a bind as they are developing at a slower rate and aren't strong enough to support the new weight and strain. You may have to rest the legs a bit and ice after use. It may take a couple of years for proper balance but you will be o.k. I don't know many kids especially boys that don't have the problem. I don't think your unusual habit is going to have a negative effect

    I remember when I was about your age the same thing happened to me and doc said it was growing pains.  Im sure there was more to it than that, but the pain did eventually go away. Try doing exercises that will strengthen all the muscles around your knee and that will prob reduce your knee pain.
