not sure if the pain is due to over weight
Yes, weight has strong association with knee pain.

Since knees and feet are pressure bearing points, over weight can cause early degenerative changes leading to pain.
Get your weight down and if pain is severe, it is recommended that you see an orthopedician and get X-rays done.
i have started few exercises like squats and strechtes
i have prob when climbing steps
mainly on the right knee
I understand; painful knees are difficult to mobilize.
You would experience difficulties while climbing stairs and after prolonged rests like as you wake up from bed.
You can consult an orthopedic doctor and X-ray will be useful.
Have you followed?
Do you have any other query.
so any other medication or home remedies
Since you have had the problem since a long time
it is necessary that we assess the severity of problem
Based on the severity the right approach of treatment can be suggested.

Your doctor would just tell your to reduce weight.
along with supplements.

Therefore consulting a doctor and getting x-ray I think is the right way forward.
