Thanks for writing to us.

As per your history, You might having problem of -

Arthrits( osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis,crystaline arthritis) - This affects the joints and can cause pain
Patellofemoral syndrome and chondromalacia patella
Iliotibial band syndrome

Since these conditions can only be differentiated by an examination, I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance to see any arthritic changes, joint destruction or any other pathology). You can also upload the X-rays here so that we can discuss this here. You can use 'Upload your reports' section.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any more concerns.
Wishing you good health.
