Thread: My Knees Hurt

  1. #1

    Default My Knees Hurt

    My knees hurt. Not all the time, just whenever I have to use them - going up stairs, getting up from sitting on the floor, etc. It's been going on for a few weeks. I can't think of any reason why. Anyone else experience this? Is it possible I have a calcium deficiency?

    DH laughed at me the other night when he heard mine "creak" as I stood up from sitting on the floor. Mine have started that all of a sudden and do get sore. I chalked it up to age and the weather changing. I already have arthritis in one due to an old injury.

    Same here. I think my body just needs more of the vits and minerals I lost when preggo. I am doing my best to take my vitamins and a few glucosamine tablets now and again. The vitamins have really helped (Gummi vites btw)

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    I'm too young for this!
    Well I am going to increase my calcium intake and see what happens.

    as well as vitamins, how has your workout routine been since the baby? I know i used to be very active, but after the baby, while i am still pumping 3x a day at work, i don't get time to work out now, and i have noticed a lot of 'creaking' that didn't happen before! just a thought! that and weather is changing here in IN, too!
