I suggest you take homeopathic medicines which are safe and have no side-effects mere taking pain-killer is no treatment for your disease - moreover it has numerous side-effects. You better start with hot and cold compresses alternately daily take a walk also take mag phos 6x - thrice daily 4 tabs continue treatment.
Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.
