    Glad you got some answers to your question. I had knee pains for years starting when I was a teenager with drs saying it was due to knee trouble. Following my lumbar fusions I found that my knee pain had been solved so it is very possible your nerves are being pinched that cause your knee to go out. All our nerves run down our spinal canal so any spinal problem that compresses your spinal cord can be causing problems further down your body. A common ailment caused by spinal cord compression is foot drop and your knee going out is just another example of what can happen.
