Pain on outside of right knee, below IT Bank(i think).

Patient

Q: About three months ago while running an easy five, my knee began to get sore, I stupidly finished the five and couldn't walk for a week. The pain is on the outside of my right knee, right under the strong tendon that runs along the outside below the IT Band. I'm pretty sure its not the IT Band. It allows me to do any other activity, squats, rowing, bike riding, jumping, but after about a half mile my knee starts getting sore and then around .75 of a mile I have a sharp pain and I stop and walk home I've read about PFPS, which I do think I have sometimes on airplanes, movie theaters, and while driving, but I've had that for years and they don't seem to be related. This is really only while running, sometimes just walking around the house there will be a dull pain but nothing really other than running. Also occasionally while walking I hear a crack like my knuckle cracking in knee, no pain I just hear it. Any ideas, solutions. I've gone to the doctor, they told
