Patella femoral : If your pain is in front/under your knee cap, then most likely chondromalacia patella. Best managed with exercise to strengthen your quads to improve tracking, and avoiding deep knee bending activities. Also oral or topical nsaids can be of benefit, as well as a brace. Injection of cortisone or hyaluronic acid also very popular. Mcl injuries can be braced & need time not cortisone injections.

Many possibilities: A cortisone injection may not take away all your pain. Have it re-evaluated.

Multiple symptoms: Many times when person develop multiple symptoms, they seek one unifying diagnosis. Unfortunately, one cause may not be the answer. Seek an opinion for each problem. I would start with the swollen lymph nodes. The evaluation of swollen lymph nodes may be best addressed by a general surgeon who might need to perform a biopsy to establish an accurate diagnosis.

Pregnancy symptoms.: You may be pregnant but not far enough along to get a positive test. Keep repeating the home pregnancy test. If your tests continue to be negative and the symptoms continue then you should see your doctor.
