It is rather an old problem as it has happened three times before at age of 15, then one year later, then after 2 year and now after three year, it is causing the same fear as i m getting the sensation of happening again. It has not happened yet may be because i m not doing any physical work like playing or running. Could you suggest me wy is it happening and whats the remedy. Also, this happens to my mother , sister and brother but in their caseit is not that serious and it remain painful for them for a 3-4 days. Thanks.

Homeopath 's  Response

It is Chondromalacia patella. The chondromalacia patella is abnormal softening of the cartilage of the under the kneecap (patella). results from degeneration of cartilage due to poor alignment of the kneecap as it slides over the lower end of the thigh bone (femur).

It can be cured with proper constitutional Homeopathy therapy.

Thank you
