Knee Pains after Exercising

I am 57 and started exercising on a vibrating machine 4 months ago. After each session I found my knees extremely painful specially walking up stairs. After a month stopped the vibrator and started going to a gym doing Pilates. The knee pain is not as bad but is still present. Is there a reason for exercise induced pain like this.
Thank you

Dear Eve
I personally think that Pilates is a much better form of exercise as it is much gentler on the joints. You probably have a bit of osteo-arthritis in the knees- the normal wear and tear changes as we age. If you are a bit overweight, this tends to exacerbate the discomfort, therefore maintaing a normal weight gets even more important as we age.

What vitamin can build up the knee joints so as not to pain when walking up and down stairs (age 53) and generally aching when over taxed.

Dear Babe
Please visit your doctor who can do a physical examination on you and send you for tests if they think it is necessary
