Hello Saber, I started taking Glucosamine Chrondroitin MSM three times a day for my osteoarthritis about 2 weeks ago. It has helped my knee, knee and back arthritis a lot. If that is the problem you might give it a try.
When I was a janitor and had arthoscopic sugery on my knee I used a towel to kneel on. It helped a lot. Because of the work that I did wearing knee pads did not work well.
I suggest that you talk to your doctor about this on your next appointment. A lot of things can cause knee pain.
Best of luck,

Is the brace padded. My friend swears by having his knees padded. At least look at them in the hardware store

Do you wear padded knee pads strapped to you knees like roofers do?
All major hardware stores carry them and they cost around $12-16 dollars. I was told the ones with a hard plastic exterior are not good because you slip with those that the vinyl exterior is best. Strap them on tight to stay on and you also walk around in them while working too.
Give yourself a fighting chance and protect those knees. You mentioned stretching but look up some stretches that are definitive and try them
