Recurring knee problems, arthritic pain, swollen knees, pain radiating to hips, feet causing painful, slow walking. What can it be?

Hi, I have been suffering with knee problems for over two years. My cartilage and bone scans seem ok, but i am regularly experiencing arthritic pain, swollen knees and pain radiating into the feet and hips. Both knees are completely faced in now and even walking is painful and slow. I am due to meet a second orthpaedic surgeon in a month for a second opinion but what else can it be? I am 40 years old and female.

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
You have not mentioned about your knee joint x ray report. Is there is reduction of joint space or it is normal. I would suggest you to post that report. If it is knee arthritis then following are the options.
1.static quadriceps exercises and warm water fomentation
2.tablet Brufen twice daily
3.Tablet calcium and vitamin D3 daily
4. Volini gel local application
