For the past several days I have been suffering with severe knee pain that begins when I
go to sleep
wake up in the middle of the night multiple times with shooting pains
throughout my legs, but mostly in my knees, and keep having to readjust my position until I can fall asleep for another half an hour. When I do finally wake up in the morning, my knees are incredibly stiff and painful (usually one is worse than the other, but it's not the same one each day.
