Hi,
Welcome to health care magic,
The knee pain would be due to muscular spasm. I would like to know the duration of pain.
Do you have any other medical illness, or on any medications?
did you have any injury?
is the pain only in one knee or any other joint?
is there any swelling?
kindly be clear with all these queries so i can help you out with accurate treatment.

Brief Answer:
Physiotherapy advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
welcome again,
The pain probably would be due to some soft tissue spasm.
Take some muscle relaxants like TAB. NUCOXIB MR and TAB. ZYMOGESIC, these medicines are available only on a presciption by a doctor. If i would be your treating doctor i would suggest you to consult a physiotherapist who'll teach you some exercises and give some local massage which will give you a better relief.
If any query kindly get get back
take care.
