So I'm 26 years old and for some reason, when I wake up in the morning...my knees ache a lot, especially when laying them flat(feels a lot better curled up). Well not too extreme but enough that it's uncomfortable. I don't do anything extreme. Back then, I knew the issue was due to the fact that I drove 800 miles every 2 weeks for my job but I don't do that anymore but yet, my knees still aches? Any ideas before I call up a doctor?

How much exercise do you get? It sounds like a little stretching, maybe even just using a stability ball for a desk chair when you're at home, would help.

You're probably hyperextending your knees when you lie flat with your legs straight. After years of sitting, that could happen. I think gentle stretching may help. Try an aspirin, too! (or another pain reliever). If it gets worse, a doctor can prescribe physical therapy.

Hmm...never would have guess I could be hyperextending my knees...the aches just happens when I wake up as well...like right now, I have no issues. I exercise daily but nothing extreme.

Vitamin D deficiency can cause achy bones and muscles - maybe look into that?
