Brief Answer:
Can be due to inflammation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen all the attached reports. The knee joint does not show any degenerative changes. The constant pain in only one knee can be due to stress related minor capsular inflammation or a soft tissue inflammation. Any structural abnormality can be diagnosed after an MRI scan. An autoimmune problem is also likely due to positive ANA.
You can start with mild pain killers calcium and D3 supplements rest hot compress and elastic knee support and see if all these measures are helpful. In case the pain persists then do consult a rheumatologist or an orthopedician after an MRI scan.
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.
