Your doctor has rightly diagnosed you. You must discus with him about treatment. He may advise you educe pain and inflammation with rest, compression, elevation, and anti-inflammatory medicines such as naproxen, or ibuprofen. Ice may also be used. At-last he may advise your steroid injection in joint.

- Apply hot packs for 30 min in morning and evening .

I hope it helps.
