Pain in knees

Since November last year,I started feeling pain in my knees,specifically when declining stairs.now since last 2-3 months I feel stiffness in my knees. If I be in knee bended position fr few minutes even,like while sitting,I am not able to straighten my knees easily. Around 9 yrs back, I had a problem with my hands'fingers. I could not straighten them when I got up in the morning. All thru the day my fingers were bent.I could not write and do household chores. My ESR was found to be high during that time. I took homeopathic medicines for sometime. I am a teacher by profession.kindly help me out.

Hello Considering your symptoms and High ESR, I would request you to get the detailed investigations like 1. RA factor and ASO titre to rule out rheumatism 2. Serum uric acid for gout. 3.Vitamin D3 levels These are main . Would be better if you consult orthopaedician with these test results as the treatment differs with the cause . All are treatable so don't worry. Only we need to find the right solution. Take care
