Joint swelling


Can anyone tell me how to upload a photo onto the chat box as I cant seem to find the way to so it.

My knees swell to the point where my right knee cap pushes up and I find it difficult to stand straight when pain is really bad.

Does anyone else experience this?

I will post a photo to show 8f I figure put how to do so.
