Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

More detailed information is required to a definite conclusion.

However, from the limited information available, you are apparently suffering from either stretching of the thigh muscle tendon at the site of its attachment just below the knee; or, you have developed osteoarthritis.

A thorough medical examination of the affected knees and the limbs will give us information about the cause. NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory pain-killers) will give you some relief.

Consult your doctor who will examine you and conclude the likeliest cause of your problem; order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable/modified treatment as advised.

In case of any further queries, revert back to me THROUGH DIRECT PREMIUM QUERY (Paid), addressed to me personally. You will receive- almost immediately- my response in great details.

Fond regards and have a nice day
