Brief Answer:
Jogging seems to be the cause

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. The cause of your suffering is because of excessive physical exercises as it all started after that and may be not supplemented by proper diet.
You might have increased the physical exercise for which your body was not prepared for (If am not incorrect). I have seen many patient’s like you and others preparing for police and Para military forces.
For now my advice would be-
1. Take a break from jogging for few days and do walking.
2. Take balanced diet rich in calcium (1000mg/day) and vitamin D (1000 i.u. /day) along with vitaminB12, B6.
3. Take Ibuprofen to reduce pain and may do ice fomentation for few days. If you like you may have nutritional joint supplement like glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

2. The nutritional joint supplement like glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate will be available in medical store with the same name ? Or any specific brand/name is available ?

Detailed Answer:
It's good to see you.
You are welcome.The daily requirement of calcium, vitamin D and vitamin is high. To have this amount diet needs to be supplemented by commercially available tablet or capsule. If there is a history of kidney stone calcium supplementation needs to be under supervision of local doctor.
The recommended dose of glucosamine sulphate is 1500mg and chondroitin sulphate is 800-1200mg daily in divides doses. Glucosamine by nutralite is a good brand and with balanced composition. Other brands are lubrijoint plus, rejoint and so on. This is usually given for 3 months and then 6 months off after there is symptomatic improvement. This is not a pain killer so additional medicines are required for pain control and optimum joint activity.
Hope this answer your query.
Take care
