I think that I may have chondromalacia. I went to an orthopedic specialist the other day complaining of pain just under the kneecap. I seem to have all the symptoms. It came on after I walked a long distance.
I have pain when I go up and down stairs, when I squat down, and when I walk. I don't feel pain when I'm not moving my knees.
What to do? The doctor said it will feel better in about 6 - 8 weeks. But in the meantime?
