Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is Uzair.I am reviewing your post and will get back to your reply momentarily.
It is most likely a condition called Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), or runner's knee, it's common among runners. The stress of running can cause irritation where the kneecap (patella) rests on the thighbone.Avoid knee-bending activities, canted surfaces, and downward stairs and slopes until the pain subsides. Apply ibuprofen cream and crepe bandage over the area and take tylenol for pain relief. If the pain persist and is severe in nature see your doctor to rule out any injury.
Hope this helps.
