    I'm 17, I've never had any kind of leg or knee injury, but this is really annoying.

    When I kneel down, or come up from a kneel, i have serious snapping/popping/cracking in BOTH my knee's. Sometimes it hurts, other times it doesn't hurt at all. What do you think it is? Anything I can do?

    Here is what thy sound like, sry about the TV in the background. I knelt down, then up, then down again a few times. - http://media.putfile.com/knee-pop

    note: this isn't BS, serious answers only please. i can provide a video if you don't believe me, but all you will see is a hairy/skinny leg going up and down, with popping noises.

    Help me with my knees, and I'll help you with your fainting :)

    But seriously...any advise? It's not that loud in person, the mic was about 2-3 inches from my knee. But it's still hearable, and still annoying, sometimes painful.

    Hmm, will do. I don't have a family doctor yet since I jsut moved, will have to search the area. They've been like this for...i dunno, forever? Never stopped me from working out or any physical activities, but I can't stand for hours on end.

    you don't even need a family doctor, there are tons of sports doctors and orthopedic doctors out there - the latter being better for your current situation

    Well, it's $50 for a walk-in at my old family doctor. And I've just received news that my parents refuse to pay for a doctor visit, even if it is a major problem...they love me SO much. Can't afford a specialist. So i guess i'll drive to the old doctor in Coppell (3 cities away) and see what they recommend.
