Hello.. Well at this age its probable signs of osteoarthritis.... Painkillers are not a solution.. Infact they will affect kidneys...please avoid them unless prescribed... Secondly... Please consult an orthopaedician and get x Ray done...if it's. Early changes then we can postpone procedure till we can manage with vit d and other supplements. If its advance then may require replacement... Thank you
