Knee pain: This could be a simple overuse syndrome which requires resting the knee from running for 7-10 days or so. Another very possible cause would be prepatella tendonitis which is treated with rest, applying alternating ice and heat for 20 minutes four times a day and taking anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen or naproxen for a week. If not improved, consult an orthopedic specialist in sports me
