See orthopedist: Sounds as though it is time to go see an orthopedists and get this thing evaluated you have used some "big gun" meds so far without result so it is time in the mean time try wrapping the knee with plastic wrap at bed time it sometimes works miracles if not it is at least cheap with no sig side effects good luck.

Knee pain: The list of causes for knee pain is extensive. The fact that he's not responding to a multitude of pain therapies, he should be evaluated by his physician to delineate the cause of his pain. It could be as simple as a politeal cyst, but it may not be.
