Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
You might be suffering from patellar tendinitis or chondromalacia patellae, which causes pain in your knee when you try to climb the stairs. This type of knee pain related to overuse or physical activity.
Slight modifications in your life style can help.
- Do regular knee exercises (quadriceps and hamstrings).
- Always warm up before exercising and cool down afterwards. Stretch your quadriceps and hamstrings.
- Lose weight if you are overweight. Every pound that you are overweight puts about 5 extra pounds of pressure on your knee cap when you go up and down stairs.
- If you have flat feet, try special shoe inserts and arch supports (orthotics).
- Make sure your running shoes are made well, fit well, and have good cushioning
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

Hello, it seems that you might be suffering from bilateral discoid meniscus which typically gives rise to the thud inside knee joint on particular movements and quite frequently gets injured producing pain. You need a clinical examination and a MRI to get diagnosed. Thank you

thanks for writng to HCM.

As per your age painful and clicking knee cannot be attributed to aging. If this problem started after some injury then we can think of cartilage injury of your knee joints but if it started gradually on its own then you need to under go some tests.... as we need to rule out some problems associated with joint pains...

blood test include



uric acid test

x-ray both knee AP & LAT VIEW

if all these blood tests and x-ray comes out to be normal then i would suggest you to start some exercises for your knees under the supervision of a physiotherapist


if any test comes out to be positive then see your orthopaedician for the further treatment

i hope this answers your query

wish you good heath

kindly write back if you have any further query
