Q: I have severe pain and swelling in my knees and some days can hardly walk what could this be?

I worked as a waitress until I had severe swelling and pain in my right knee, I had to quit working because the pain got so bad, now I have pain and swelling in my left knee also stiffness.  The pain is worse in the morning and at nite and sometimes I havea sharp pain while walking or gardening, I can't get on my  knees anymore without help getting up. I went to the emergency room when it started they took xray's of my right knee and diagnosed it as arthritis, I havent been to a dr. since and the pain is worse and in both knee's
