If symptoms worsen see an orthopedic specialist for diagnosis and advice regarding treatment but this sounds mild for now.

See a different MD. Have you ever had a MVA in the past like 1-10 years ago? Is this on the R or the L, or both, knees. All around, lateral, medial, anterior, posterior, any other joints are involved?, shoulders, lower back, etc. Have you seen a Dr.?, Have you had X rays? Are you on medications?, Do you have a diagnosis. If yes, I would suggest to see a rheumatologist, he will manage both knees. If not see one.
