Thank you for all the information,There can be patellofemoral pain.This can occur from overuse, malalignment of patella, muscle weakness of quadriceps.In your case, it was likely due to overuse.Swelling of the knee, giving way can also come from ligament strain within knee.Usually conservative treatment will help.You need to avoid over exertion & activity which precipitates the pain.Physiotherapy can be helpful.
This will strengthen the muscle.Orthotic shoe devices can be used.An orthopedic doctor can be consulted.You can take antiinflammatory analgesics like motrin or naproxen if you do not have contraindication to them.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
