Knees Point Inward
stock3556 posted:
Over the years, I have started to feel pain in my knees. It started with swelling on the inside and lower areas of the knees and constant popping or clicking of the knee. More recently, I have noticed sharp to dull pain on the inside of my knee along with the swelling. In addition, when I wear heals, walk too much, or go for a run, my knees start pointing inward to the point that I have to rest due to the pain and less balance. Someone told me to just buy special sneakers, but I want to make sure there isn't a more serious issue before training for a marathon and possibly injuring it more.

So go to an orthopedic surgeon and have your knees examined. Nobody on the internet can tell you what's going on with them. If they hurt, and you keep doing things that make them hurt more, like running marathons, then you're doing more damage.
