In brief: As above

Could be arthritis , but correct diagnoses can 't be made without detailed assesment.

In brief: Possibly PVD

May be circulation.
Sitting compromises circulation because bending restricts blood flow. If circulation is already compromised then bending would cause pain. When you get up and start moving, circulation improves and the pain improves. Do you have diabetes? I would have your doctor order an abi which is a noninvasive way to evaluate circulation in the legs.
