Is there anything special that you do to care for your knees and joints?
Just recently I noticed a twinge in my knees at the patella (knee cap) and I am wondering if I may have strained ligaments?
Right now, I am taking some time off to rest my legs and knees and see what happens.

Questions like this are best discussed with your doctor, mate.
Keep 'em warm and get your position on the bike right.

any/all of the above have helped me, but then again i still ended up without cartilege in at least one of my knees at 38.
As mentioned above, start with RICE
add to that being conscious of good posture when you're walking, riding, and especially when you're sitting.
Have you been wearing tights lately?
