The Disease can develop slowly over several months or even years. First the person has pain in the knees, which only appear in the result of a long walk. But then, pain increases when walking short distance. It is especially hard for people with this disease to rise from a chair, to climb stairs. The reason for this is the formation of bony growths on the knee joint. At rest there is no pain as there is it and at night. But this does not apply in those cases when a patient walks in the day long or overloads the knee in another way.
