    I tore a meniscus in my knee at about 50. Just carrying luggage up a hotel stairs for the exercise. Needless to say, I take the elevator now. Knee is fine now and that's the only problem I've ever had even though I'm overweight.

    I've had the same problem for the last year. The crinkling, the soreness going up stairs, the discomfort when getting out of a chair, etc. I'm only 40! :(

    I'm 43 and get a little knee soreness (not bad) after strenuous activity or repeated heavy lifting. It started being more consistent right around 40 and it's not something that stops me from doing what I need to do. Suck it up pussy!:cheer:

    I blew my left knee out kicking in a door about 13 years ago, did the rehab recommended and haven't had any real issues with it since. I got lucky!

    This isn't a bust but extra weight, after the age of 30, is brutal on your joints. Especially if you are becoming active again. Most folks report pain in thee lower back, hips, knees and ankles.

    I notice the day after I play golf (I walk) they're usually a little sore. It takes a while to get the old joints going.

    I'll be 45 next Sunday.

    I'm 55, work 40-60 hours per week, hire 29 yr old jocks to get my coffee and run errands for me. They wear shirts and ties while I wear Tommy Bahama to work, and get a bonus for finding useful things for them to do.

    Knees are o.k. it's just my eyes that are starting to go. Never had to wear glasses in my life...now I have to pull my head back to read what I'm writing.


    What a drag.
