Can be due to osteoarthritis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

At your age the weakness and pain in the knee can be due to Osteoarthritic changes in the knee. Taking calcium supplements along with the medicines you are taking will help. Do a hot compress and avoid squatting or painful activities. Doing regular exercise will also help in strengthening the muscles.

I hope this answers your query.

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.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
