this seems like inflammatory arthritis. Lack of vitamin D & B12 is only a coincidental value. You need to be seen by Orthopedic Surgeon & Rheumatologist.........the role of physio comes much later.

Quad Clenches: Lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, Hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short Arcs: Lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day.

Answered
Hi, this is Dr Hitin Mathur, orhopaedic surgeon at Fortis  C Doc Hospital, New Delhi. Inflammation of multiple joints including hips and knees points more towards a systemic pathology rather than a local one joint affection. So you will need to get some blood tests to rule out various types of joint inflammation and arthritis like Anti CCP, ANA, ASO tires, HLA B27, Uric acid along with CBC, ESR and CRP. Sometimes reactive Arthritis can occur post a viral illness as well. Correction of vitamin D and vitamin B12 levels will also help. Start taking some antiinflammatory medications as adviced by your treating doctor for the time being. Synovial fluid examination may be needed as a second step if no conclusive evidence is found on the blood tests.
