My mom is 45, she is experiencing pain in the knee recently , the pain comes in the morning when she wakes up ( when the leg is idle without any activity for long) same after sitting for a while when she gets up.
What may be the reasons?

Hello
Your mother may be suffering from osteoarthritis
It may be because of the age or sedentary habit.
Ask her to take Calcium 250mg once a day.
Let her do mild exercise like walking, once the pain reduces.
Painkillers will not of much use, for sustained use.
Try applying some pain relieving balms.
Eat fiber rich food
