I had hEDS. Lately my knee has just been giving out while I walk, it just feels so unstable and I’ll just be walking and my knee gives out. Luckily I’m usually at home and catch myself before I fall or anything. Any tips for helping this? It doesn’t necessarily hurt which is what’s strange, sometimes the faintest soreness but not really. I have issues with my hips so I’m sure that adds to it but the knee just needs extra support somehow. I had issues with this knee in high school (7 years ago) but haven’t had any problems since.

      Do you know where the instability in the knee comes from? My knees give out sometimes too, but I have these braces that help with overall stabilization and also keeping my kneecap in place.

        @goblin49 I have no idea. It would randomly do it throughout the years but now it’s multiple times a day. In high school I have problems and used KT tape to keep my kneecap on the right track but I don’t have that pain anymore. I suppose it could all be connected. I was wondering if a compression of sorts could help.
