Question: Can Patellar Tracking Disorder's (the problem I think I might suffer from) symptoms only be prevalent at night or after long period of use? During the daytime my knee feels ok, except that it feels unstable at times. After using it (my knee) for a few hours it slowly starts to become unstable and eventually it gives out. For the rest of the night i have to use crutches to get around and I am in tremendous pain, especially on the lower inside area under my left kneecap. This condition has occurred in the past only lasting an hour or two then it subsides. This time it is more severe than in the past. I am now on day with no signs of recovery. Any thoughts on the matter? Thank you for your help!
