Knee joint problem

I'm experiencing pain in my left knee. Exact spot is just below the knee cap - a joint is giving me pain. While sitting or standing, it doesn't pain. But while walking I'm not able to put pressure on my left leg and hence it looks like I'm limping. This pain has been continuing for 5-6 days and has increased in-spite of applying ointment(VOLINI).

Hello sir,, you have not mentioned how this pain has started, whether it's after any injury? Knee pain at this age with limping is something to look upon could be due to bone pain or ligament injury. Don't massage your knee with any pain killer ointments, it simply worsens the condition. Consult a orthopedician for diagnosis of your knew pain.
