Painful due to exercise

I have recently started back at the gym (about 6 weeks) however my knees hurt so much. Not just after exercise but all the time. At first I thought maybe it was the fact that my quads needed strengthening up but it's getting worse.

    What are you doing at the gym? It sounds like you either need to slow down (speed, weight, frequency or whatever depending on routine) or find a different form of exercise.

    Please refer to a doctor if you feel that your pain isn't normal after a workout. We cannot diagnose you online.

    agree re doctor

    DOMS does not tend to affect knees, it's by it's very nature muscular - that sounds like a joint issue
