Cardiologist 's  Response

Your symptoms could be related to arthritis or chronic vitamin D deficiency. For this reason, I recommend consulting with an orthopedist, performing a knee joint MRI and checking vitamin D and electrolytes plasma levels.

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