First of all, GOOD for YOU that you walk! Every bit counts and every bit helps. Keep it up! Also, sometimes if you find some sand, grass or dirt to walk on...it lessens the "sidewalk" concrete inpact on the knees. That is of course if you can walk alright on this sort of surface.
I understand the "clicking" "noise" "Popping" sound/feeling in the knees.
My opinion?...I would suspect some osteoarthritis. Basically OA is wear n' tear of the joint from just plain old time!
Losing weight will help the pain and osteoarthtitis IMMENSELY! The weight los will relieve the pressure from the joint as you drop.
Do you have a doctor? Any Xrays done?
The supplements you take certaintly will not hurt. NSAIDs like advil or ibuprofen help OA pain as does simple tylenol, but seek a doc first just to make sure.
Also take note of any swelling of the knee, redness, increased pain after activity, does the pain get better with rest.
Ice packs help the inflammation and pain. As does elevating the leg effected.
