Had pain in my left knee and slightly more painful when I sit down and get up. What do you think this could be?

I am a 44 year old woman who works in retail, so on my feet all day and have been all my life. I am fit and healthly do not smoke or drink and am not over or under weight. Over the past two weeks I have had pain in my left knee and slightly more painful when I sit down and get back up again, it is causing me discomfort. What do you think this could be?

Well the first thing that comes to my mind after hearing your symptoms is osteoarthritis. As such I recommend you go to a doctor and ask for an xray of your knee to confirm this diagnosis, a blood test can help rule rheumatoid arthritis as well.
If the disease is osteoarthritis your doctor will prescribe you medication and other physical therapy accordingly.
Hope this helped.
