Thanks for your query.

The symptoms you have are due to osteoarthritic changes. These are basically age related degenerative changes and is characterized by joint pain and stiffness. Upon movement the stiffness gradually relives. Sometimes application of hot pads can make the movement possible.
The treatment options include pain killers, hot fomentation, lubricating agents like glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin , dycerin, etc and some life style modifications and physiotherapy.
Dolonex DT is an antiinflammatory and having no such long lasting side effects.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
