the knee pain.

For things at home you need low impact exercise. When they hurt you need ibuprofen, elevate the knee, and to use heat and cold. Peronally, I don't use cold because it stiffens my knee up more.
As far as a specialist your doctor will probably have to refer you to either a rheumatologist or orthopeadic surgeon. It depends on your specific needs.
