Hi,
From history it seems that you might be having osteoartheritis changes in your knee joints giving rise this problem.
go for x-ray for having degenerative changes in the joint or some some ligament and cartilage damage.
Go for patellar exercise daily.
do bend your knee more or do not sit on squatting position.
Ok and take care.
