I’ve had pain in my legs for a couple months now?

I’ve had pain in my legs for a couple months now – much more pronounced in my right leg and even more so in my knee. During the day, it’s sore but I don’t really pay that much attention to it, but at night, it’s a different story. As long as I keep it straight, it’s tolerable. And I can sleep with it bent as well. But after being bent, when I try to straighten it out, it feels like a rubber band has contracted while bent and straightening it feels like stretching this horrible rubber band over and around my knee. I also get a significant dull ache over my right shin. My knee during the day feels “full” (for lack of a better description). Doesn’t appear swollen or red. My doctor writes it off as “osteoarthritis” however he’s done no testing. Does this sound like osteoarthritis to you? Again, thank you for any insight you can provide.
