Thanks for the reply.
You need to have certain tests done to rule out any underlying cause of these pains.
These tests should include basic rheumatology profile including inflammatory markers like ES, CRP quantitative, Rheumatoid factor , Uric acid levels and ANA.
You should also have thyroid functions tests done to rule out hypothyroidism.
In addition deficiency of vitamin D and vitamin B12 needs to be ruled out.
You should also have X rays of both knees and lumbar and cervical spine to rule out spondylosis.
Further treatment should be based on the results of these tests.
