Hiya. and I'm 16 years old. I have a problem with my knees.

Customer Question

Hiya. My name's Rebecca and I'm 16 years old. I have a problem with my knees. Both are swollen at the minute and painful. Sometimes I could go a week with no pain then suddenly they're really sore and I'm not sure what the problem is. I would go to my gp but they're closed and I wouldn't be able to make an appointment on monday. Just wondering if you knew what was wrong. Thanks!

Rebecca you could be having rheumatoid arthritis condition causing joint swelling coming up off and on. Exact diagnosis requires blood test and x rays but meanwhile you can use aspirin (soluble one) tablets with milk or meal.
