Knee pain while playing netball, uncontrollable shaking. Will the weakness go away?

Hi I have had pain in my knees for the last six months while playing netball. Two nights ago after sitting for about an hour, i got up but my knees felt week and I could not keep myself upright. They felt like I have been sprinting untill they gave way. Both knees have now been shaking uncontrollably for two days. They are very week and i cannot walk without having them shake, I have been to see two Dr s and they seem to think it is nothing and will go away. Any advise will be appreciated Regards Angelique

Rheumatologist 's  Response
Good evening. From what you describe it looks more of a muscle weakness but it could be any ligament injury in the knee as well. Ligament injury is normally not seen in both the knees at the same time. I hope you are not experiencing difficulty in getting up from the toilet seat. If you are experiencing such problems, you need to get your muscle enzymes checked. You can try with analgesics for a couple of days. But if it doesnt improve schedule an appointment with a rheumatologist as they can look into the muscle as well as the joint and advise investigations accordingly. Hope the information was useful
