Hi, Kayjoshi,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having Osteoartheritis of knee joint.
Go for X ray knee and get it diagnosed.
Then if it is osteoartheritis then go for Physiotherapy.
This will give good relief from pain and limited mobility as well.
Mean while take pain reliever medicine as and when required.
Swimming also will help.
Ok and bye.
