    Your other knee is hurting because you are changing the way you walk in order to ease the strain on the first one. This is throwing your other knee joint out of alignment so causing more pain. This is how OA spreads. DD

    Everyone does it, daisymae, I mean changing the way they move: it's an unconscious reaction to the pain being caused in the original joint by the OA.
