Hello,

Knee pain can be related to many medical conditions. It can be related to body weight. Arthritis can also cause knee pain. I suggest to do an X-ray of the knee and rheumatoid factor level for further evaluation. I also suggest to consult a rheumatologist for further evaluation.

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

Regards,
