Knees begining to hurt

I have been an avid exerciser for since my teens.  I have started having knee pain I believe due to hilly terrane and extensive lunges. 
Over the last 4 years I have lost my muscle tone and am very slim.  Knee pain scares me.  I would like suggestions for best video's to avoid more damage.  I do not need to lose weight, I am 52 and want to gain muscle tone.  Thank you for your suggestions.

    You could have a weak posterior chain and tight quads. Or you could have internally rotated femurs (do you stand or walk with turned out feet? - that can be a sign).  There are quite a few things that could be a problem.

    Check out restorativeexercise.com and katysays.com (her blog). She has tons of info on knees, hips, feet, etc. Her blogs have videos. I'm a real fan, as I've had success using her methods for PFD and also knee issues (I'm 64). Katy is a biomechanist and super smart.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi, Jodie-

    I was looking at your photo.  Are you another Arkansan?

    Have you iced your knees? Works wonders in many cases.
