Brief Answer:
It is due to analgesic action.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query. Joint pain in legs at this age is mainly because of Arthritis. In arthritis there is erosion of bones of joints that is why when you stand up from sitting position, you feel pain and later is reduces.

Cheston cold and flu tablet relieves you of pain due to it analgesic action( Pain Killer). It is not advised for joint pain on regular basis. Other analgesics like piroxicam can be taken when needed. But i advise you to visit a local rheumatologist for your problem. He will examine you and do some necessary investigations and prescribe you medicines accordingly.

I strongly discourage you against using pain killers chronically. It has detrimental effects.

Hope i have answered your query, if you have another query then feel free to ask.
