Hi there!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your pain. Possibilities that may need to be considered include re-injuries, hardware issues, inflammations, degenerations, neuro-muscular issues etc. Without a diagnosis at hand it would be difficult to suggest a management plan. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile you could try some OTC NSAIDS for pain relief.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
