You probably have overuse patellar tendinopathy from walking and running tends to localize to the mid-portion of the tendon and sometimes toward the insertion on the tibial tubercle. Icing, supportive taping, and patellar tendon straps are adjunctive treatments that provide some relief of symptoms. A short course of oral or topical NSAIDs can be used for analgesia.

You have some swelling around the knee. That is essentially a normal MRI
