Lately when I get up from sitting my knees feel like buckling. It takes a few minutes of standing for the feeling to go away. Its very uncomfortable. Kind of feels like my knee caps have disapeared. At the same time i could describe it as a numb feeling in my knees. It is painful to.
I don't sit in positions that would cut the curculation off. I am constantly moving around and playing with my daughter and doing housework so I am not sure what is going on.
I'm taking methotrexate and maybe it has something to do with it.
Any ideas.

I think maybe you should contact your doc. Better safe than sorry I think.

Good luck,
