Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   After going through the description provided by you, I feel that you might be suffering with calcium or vit D deficiency.
Doctor :   I feel that this pain would not be related to arthritis as this is only present in the knees but yes, vit D deficiency can cause arthritis know as Osteoarthritis.
Doctor :   I would suggest you to continue following exercises and in the gym avoid heavy weights till we know the exact cause of the pain.
Doctor :   I feel you need to see an Orthopedician who will suggest you get a x ray of the knee joints and also to get routine blood investigations like complete blood count, serum calcium and sr vitamin D.
Doctor :   To know the exact cause.
User :   will thsi condition affect me in long term ..
User :   or is there any cure so that i can get out of this condition assuming i am having this disease
Doctor :   Depending on the cause and early treatment would not effect you. As most of the bone related conditions can be completely cured.
Doctor :   But most importantly is to know the cause. So please see an experienced Orthopedician for your condition.
Doctor :   If it is related to vit D or calcium deficiency then respective supplements would help you in healing this.
User :   oke doctor
User :   also doctor .. in the gym i can do threadmill ann cycling without worrying rite ?
Doctor :   And food products rich in calcium and regular exposure to sun in the mornings between 8 to 10 would be helpful in production of Vit D naturally.
