What causes knee pain and upper back pain?

I am 60 yrs old and recently I have been getting pains in my knees and upper back. I feel tired, but when I go to sleep I wake up after about 3 hours of sleep, most of the time my upper back is hurting and my joints in my knees are hurting. If I take Aleve, the pain stops but comes back in the evening

Hello,

As first-line management, you can take analgesics like paracetamol or aceclofenac for pain relief.

If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedic and plan for an MRI scan.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
