It is unusual to get the disease on both the sides.

Pain you are experiencing on the other side is likely due to bearing more weight on that side. It seems to be due to over work.

Once your start taking weight on both the sides, pain would go away.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
