    Good morning @Kiera and welcome to the Versus Arthritis Online Community.

    You don't say whether you have been given a diagnosis yet for your knee and leg pain (are they the same leg I wonder?). If not your GP is probably the first port of call for you so that you know exactly what is going on.

    I am attaching some information which should be of interest to you:

    There is reference in the article to legs giving way which you also mention.

    People very often do mention their legs giving way on here and some use mobility aids to protect themselves from falling. Your GP should be able to refer you to a physiotherapist for advice with these. In some areas you can self-refer.

    Take a look around the Community and maybe pop 'leg giving way' into the search ( the top of this page in white on the black part) there you should find some older threads on the subject.

    I will leave you now to meet some of our members

    Best wishes
