Q.

Knee pain

My knee hurts, especially when I put pressure on it, like when I am walking. I consulted a doctor and was given painkillers which are very ineffective. It is not painful when I am sleeping or sitting down, it only pains when I walk.

You should see a rheumatologist.

You may have bursitis around the knee and it may require cortisone injection.
