Hello,

Knee pain is due to arthritis and pain killers won’t help much, you should look for an alternative treatment and consult your physician to administer steroids for short interval.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhanu Partap, Cardiologist
