I am a 27 year old male. My weight is 85 kg and height is 179 cm. About 2 years ago, I participated in a half marathon. On that day, I started feeling pain in both knees above the patella. I think in quadriceps tendon. I followed RICE and the pain went off. But, after that, whenever I do some running or exercise it again starts paining and I have to take rest for a week to reduce it. Recently, I have started going gym and doing light exercises. Even for this, it is paining very badly near and just above the patella. I feel pain while running, staircase movement and bending knees. I am not taking any medicine or medical help now. I am just using pain relieving ointment. Please help me.
