 To make a long story short.. I got diagnosed with Patellofemoral pain syndrome about 3 months ago.. that was 6 months in to my job as a cashier. It's 9 months in and my knees aren't getting better but getting worse.

I've had to cut my hours down because of this to try to help it.

I obtained this knee-overuse syndrome by the sheer fact i stand for 8-10hrs straight each day at work which is a place I am not allowed to sit down at. I cant take too many more hours out of my work schedule or im screwed.. but every time I try to rest them, even for two consecutive off days I will be just fine, but 30mins into my job the next day, both of my knees just act as if I did not just let them rest, and we are back at square one.

Any ideas what to do about this? I cant get relief from my knees aching unless I sit but they will not let me.
