How long will my knee pain last?

ANSWER

It depends. Knee pain most often happens because of arthritis or some type of injury. Arthritis pain tends be dull and aching and get worse over time. It may not completely go away, but sometimes it feels much better. Pain from an injury improves at first, but if you're left with a sore joint, you may not be able to do certain activities.
