Dear Madam,

Thank you for your query.

Well looking into your history you have got complaints of trembling of knees . At the age of 60 years the most probable reason would be osteoarthritis of knees which involves degradation of joints . The primary cause of osteoarthritis is the damage of joint resulting from mechanical stress with insufficient repair of joints . Age is also a big factor .

Other thing can be malalignment of joint or presence of loose bodies may also give such feeling.

I advise you to see a rheumatologist and get Serum calcium , Vitamin D levels, X XXXXXXX both knees and DEXA Scan to look for any evidence of osteoporosis according to his advise . Knee examination is also very important to look for any kind of swelling or crepitus etc. After exact cause determination the treatment can be started.

Take care.

Dr. Shruti
