Sharpening of the tibial spines. Minimal hypertrophic change at the intercondylar notch medially. Spur formation at the anterior tibial tubercle. No meniscal calcification. No free joint body. Smooth articular surfaces.

The changes narrated are suggestive of early case of degenerative joint disorder most likely. However, it is best recommended to provide your X-ray plates, details of symptoms at current time for best framing and co relation with the clinical perspectives to handle further.

* Time being approach for primary relief would be:
- Heating pad application 3 times a day, 5 minutes each
- Local capsaicin crem use
- Anti inflammatory medicine as ibuprofen with paracetamol
- Avoiding sudden jerking movements of legs
