Long story short, both my knees as well as my ankles have been hurting on and off for several months. Not enough for me to be bed ridden but enough that I can't really focus on anything too important.
Now that I've started in a new job where I stand 6-8 hours a day, five days a week and my knees have began to hurt with every step I take, my ankles hurt and "crunch". (I have food and supportive work shoes btw.)
Anyway, since I don't think I can handle another 10 hour day at work without knowing for sure if my knees are gonna give up all of a sudden, I'm gonna call my doctor tomorrow.
SO MY QUESTION IS..
How should I explain my situation to the doctor? I'm kind of afraid to seem like I'm faking it if I tell the doctor how bad I feel..
Plus, because there's so much "wrong" with me, I'm afraid that there's isn't actually anything wrong and that I'm just imagining things..
Oh, I'm 19 years old, normal weight, have exercised my entire life: danced for 14 years. Have been told I have hypermobile joints.
