Thanks for writing to us.
Your symptoms are suggestive of osteoarthritic changes in your knee joints. You can relieve the symptoms by taking mild pain killers, doing a hot fomentation, applying a local analgesic gel and taking joint lubricant supplements like Dycerin and Glucosamine.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
