I have been getting pain in my knees for 2 or 3 months now and am wondering if it may be arthritis.The pain often spreads down my lower legs and most of the time my legs are reasonably warm,while my knees feel like two ice cubes!It is really getting me down combined with other health problems,do you have any advice?I should mention that I also have an annular tear in my lower spine,could this be connected?
You may have signs of arthritis / 'wear and tear' in your knees but for an accurate diagnosis you would benefit from being assessed by a Chartered Physiotherapist. Speak to your GP who will be able to refer you.
