Hi Robert I have had osteo in both knees for many years. I am now 65 years of age. Whilst exercise is good I think you should see a doctor, have xray and maybe a referral to the hospital. Just over a year ago I could walk a lot with minimum pain but now over the months the pain has got worse and I am now waiting for a washout. The hospital would not give me a steroid injection. I am telling you
so that you can get help now. I left it too long and can no longer go out much due to pain. Good luck hope you get some help soon. Carol
