Lost power in legs around knee cap, painful. Suggestions?

I will loose power in one of my legs, around the knee cap. It s somewhat painful and the liength of time I can t wall on it is short. My dad had both knees replaced from arthritis and I have had two types since I was young. I am now 33, help run a film studio and at times I am on my feet ten hours a day. It happens then too. Random, not everyday, but atleast every week.

your father had both knee arthritis ,hence genetic risk is there for you too having arthritis.But check whether it was rheumatoid arthritis or is it osteoarthritis?Osteoarthritis occur more in prolonged standing and deficient calcium and overweight.What i would suggest to get ortho consultation., you require short course of analgesics and anti edeema measures. Meantime if your overweight you have to reduce it, avoid prolomged standing as possible ,use knee caps for both knees, have calcium tablets and calcium rich food
