So this has been happening for a while. Every time I go up stairs my knee will lock up. It does this no there time except when Im going up stairs. Any body have any ideas as to what this is, or why this happens?

Have you been seen by an orthopedic? Sounds like an unstable knee cap.

It's time to see an orthopedic doctor. A torn meniscus can cause those symptoms but so can a lot of other things. None of them can be diagnosed or treated over the internet.

I realize this, but I just didnt know if it was something I should be taking action for of if its normal.

No, of course it's not normal. If it was then everyone's knees would lock up.

Lol that's true. I guess what I mean is if it was something bad. I put it off because it don't bother me until I take the stairs.

Please see an orthopedic specialist as soon as you are able. If you put it off until it is really bad, he may not be able to fix it with you.

Take care, Annette
