It would be best to consider going back to your doctor for a review, this shouldn't be the case. You may need to go consider going back to physiotherapy to see if there are exercises that would help strengthen the muscles around the joint, both to stabilize and also to help reduce the pain. You may also need to restart pain medication as well. Combination pain medication, that is using pain medication from 2 or more drug families would help with pain control.

I hope you feel better and also hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
