Brief Answer: Get x-ray done. Detailed Answer: Hi, I have read your query. You have not mentioned any history of trauma so is am assuming your pain to be non-traumatic. You should get x-ray both knees standing done in AP and Lateral view, x-ray affected knee in skyline view and x-ray lumbo-sacral view done in AP and Lateral view done. We will be able to get a clear picture after getting the reports. Your treating doctor who will do your physical examination and will be able to correlate it with the reports. I usually prescribe painkiller and muscle relaxants like aceclofenac+thiocolchicoside to my patients who present with a similar scenario. My advice is that you should avoid climbing upstairs and squatting as much as you can. Apply hot packs for 30 mins in morning and evening. I hope you have got your answer. You are welcome to ask further query if any in your mind. Thanks. Dr. Singh.
