Knee Problems After Squatting

So, I used to hate doing squats but I grew a liken' to them and now can squat 225x6 quite easily which isn't my problem..

It seems as the weight is getting heavier I'm having more and more bone problems. Not only are my thighs/glutes/hamstrings sore after squatting/leg day, my knees also antagonize me and cause a great amount of pain.

Anyone go through this at all? I know they say in order to help knee problems you should squat as it'll make you stronger but that clearly is hurting my knees.

I'm at the point where I don't know if I should just go lighter, find a solution among supplements, stop squatting altogether, or change up my diet.

Help plz?
