Hello. Imaging would be required to pinpoint the problem. However based on the information you provided seems to be related to wear and tear or overuse. Ideally, periods of rest would help as well as ant-inflammatory medication. Also strengthening the muscles surrounding the knee would be of outmost importance since stronger muscles would support your movements and reduce the pain. A physical therapist would be a solution for you. As such, a qualified physical therapist could establish a proper and suitable muscle building therapy for you. Regards
