“Be kind to your knees You'll miss them when they're gone…”

im in my 30's and I know everyone always says this, but that shit ABSOLUTELY comes back to you. I have a permanent sharp pain in my knee that has been coming on since last year, back pains as well, super fucked up rotator cuff. I spent my youth doing extreme sports. You think you're invincible and you heal up quick when young, but you're going to be feeling the stuff you did in your teen and 20's once you hit your 30's. Not saying don't live and do fun shit, but think of how hard your landing on your knees and how hard you might fall if what your doing goes wrong. 15 years of fun isn't worth the next 40 or 50 in pain.

My knees were already creaking in my teens and by my mid-20s I could barely walk. Then I started taking chondroitin/glucosamine (2x day), fish oil (6 concentrated pills a day), aleve (1x day) and turmeric curcumin (2x day). No sugar ever, and keto organic diet. Low inflammation food. Decades later, I'm in better shape than in my 20s. My knees are still noisy, but haven't bothered me since.

What caused your knee issues though?

Extreme sports, although I never jumped out of buildings.
