Hello Dear,
You should avoid getting yourself exposed to cold weather and cold water.
It has been found that nerve cells are more susceptible to cold stimuli and exposure to cold increases the sensitivity causing pain.There is no medication for this,except that you keep yourself warm .You should consult an orthopedic surgeon and get an x-ray done to rule out osteoarthritis.
