Thank you for posting your query on ATD.
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. I think you should rule out two possibilities looking to your age. One is tendinitis of patellar tendon. treatment of it is rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen. Second possibility is vitamin D deficiency You can get vitamin D level and if found low you can take supplements of vitamin D3. Another possibility is osgood schlatter disease which is apophysitis of tibial tubercle. Treatment of it is rest and analgesic such as ibuprofen for pain relief. You can further investigate by MRI of knee joint. Hope your query get answered.
Wishing you a good health.
