Hello and thanks for the query
Firstly I may know your age? Lots depend on it.
According to the symptoms like cracking sounds it seems you have Osteoarthritis of knee and hip but be need not to forget about PIVD at a age above 40. Consult you doctor and go far X-ray Knee and Lumberspine to rule out the cause.
The other possibility for the pain are Gout, Sciatica and Avascular Necrosis.
My advise to you consult you doctor and get diagnosed and treatment according to that.

Hi there,

The possibilities I can think of are arthritis, Sciatica, Osteoarthritis etc. For immediate pain relief I would advise you to take paracetamol or brufen after food.Try applying hot fomentation on the hip and knee.

Please visit your doctor for further evaluation.

Hope this helps.
