Why do my knees hurt when i sit for long? Why are they stiff and sore?

Hi! I used to sit down and have no problems such as pain in my knees. Now I cannot sit down longer than 30 minutes without having pain in my knees. I would have to get up and walk it out and the pain disappear. what does this means? sometimes the pain from my knees wake me up during the night. Often time, I am am sore and stiff when I get up in the morning. What does this mean?

Thanks for writing to us.
Pain in the knees associated is morning stiffness is suggestive of osteoarthritic changes in the knee joint. Regular exercise, calcium supplements and avoiding sitting in a squatting position will help in decreasing the symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
