My knees feel stiff when I run. Very little pain, but I can only jog slowly due to the stiffness.

After completing a jog of 5 miles, the knees begin to hurt a few hours after and it gets worse by the next day.

I have to rest for a day or two before I can jog again.

Question:

Why does rest decrease the knee pain?

i.e., If the cartilage that cushions the knee is worn down, shouldn't the knees hurt every time I try to run?
You should consult several doctors about this. Don't delay the diagnosis and treatment. We are built differently. Good luck
