Why are my legs and knees become stiff ?

Within the last two months my legs/knees have become unusually stiff. It s harder to walk down stairs than up. They just seem like they are sore all the time with a lot less flexibility. My calves seem tight all the time as well. I m 44 and still active, not sure what is going on. Any help?

Thanks for query,
it seems that you might have some degenerative changes are there in your joints ans vertebral spines.
Go for x ray lumbo sacral spines and knee joints.
Take vit A,D, and calcium.
Do regular physical exercise like running,swimming daily for 30-40 mnt.
Ok and bye.
