My husband has developed swollen knees with severe pain ...

This answer was rated:

My husband has developed swollen knees with severe pain when he walks. He has had this in the past, but never in both knees. It usually goes away, but I am concerned about this. Can you help? His Mom suggested remic acid as a problem. I have no idea what that is and can''t find it on line.

Hello Judy

Probably his mother must be speaking about Uric acid which result in a disease known as gout.

But on the basis of symptoms you have described,please see this webpage for more information and some insight regarding his problem.

I hope it helps.
