Question:

I have very weak knees they hurt if I do any physical activity like run or aerobics. I have been taking paroxetine for 5 years, will this have anything to do with it.

I am not aware that Paroxetine (paxil) has the side effects you describe.  I encourage you to see your primary care physician about your trouble with your knees.
