No injury, just wear and tear, age, perhaps familial propensity. Found that I had some pain, especially in R knee; however, it was remarkable to me how my primary symptom that affected me and especially my functioning was a very rapid decrease in knee strength (going into extension to stand up). Suddenly, could barely get out of tub, found myself getting up off the floor or ground like an old lady when other friends my age are hiking around mountains like they were still 30 or 40.
