I have just found this site and joined in the hope someone can give me some advice. I havent been to the Dr's yet with the problem, I intend to when I get back from holiday in 2 weeks. I think I have some form of arthritis, my knees get very painful and seem to "lock" when I get up from sitting and I have to stand for a few seconds before I can walk. Some of the time if I stand still for a minute or so I find it hard to move again. At night I get pain in my hip to the extent some nights I cant sleep more than a couple of hours and my back aches but not all the time. I have found if I walk too far or am on my feet for long periods the pain gets worse. I have been taking 500mg paracetamol to ease the pain, which does help.Can someone tell me if it is arthritis please
