Hi. I have seen your msg. Have you undergone any vitamin d test. If you have then what is the result of your vitamin can start some knee strengthening exercise .start with light exercise without weight. Once the pain reduce you can start with some resistance exercise with the help of good physiotherapist doctor. U can do contrast bath that is apply cold and hot bag alternately for 20 min. Apply hot bag for 10 min and then give a gap for 5 min and then apply 10 min cold pack. You can even use knee cap while walking. See a good physiotherapist.
