Sounds like chondrom: Chondromalacia will give u these symptoms. The tress across the patello-femoral joint going up or down stairs is a symptom of this as stairs especially going down puts a lot of stress across this joint. Also when u sit 4 a while there's constant pressure exerted across this joint also & since the body has good pressure sensors when you suddenly release this pressure it is painful. C an ortho4 eval.
