Joint fluid analysis: Although it's possible that this is related to your marathon training you need to have a joint fluid analysis to see if it's inflammatory or not inflammatory, if it's infection or not infection and to see if there are crystals or no crystals.

I am experiencing knee pain for the past 5 years- Painful swollen joints, Knee swelling, and Joint stiffness. Gradually getting worse. MRI showed only inflamation. Do I need to go to ortho dr? What can I expect to hear as diagnosis?
Yes and Rheumatology: It sounds to me like you have a polyarthritis that may be an inflammatory arthritis. Lab tests for connective tissue disease are not routinely performed, but in your case I would test for Lyme disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, and other causes of polyarthropathy.

Medial side knee joint point tenderness/pain. Can walk but does start to hurt. Cannot run more than a few minutes without pain, so stop. Stiff, tight, and hurts when sitting and then standing up from sitting. Very painful when running.?
Physical exam: This medial joint pain may indicate several injuries are present. You need a physical exam including an examination of your hip which can refer pain to your medial knee via the obturator nerve distribution. You may also have medial collateral ligament, medial meniscus, or anterior cruciate ligament damage. You may have an exaggerated q angle as some women do which can lead to medial compartment OA ...Read more

Can a displace mensical root cause locking of the knee joint? What causes a knee joint to lock up? Unable to straighten the leg without extreme pain.
Yes: A torn meniscus can cause the knee to "lock" when the flap of meniscus that is torn gets pinched between the femur and tibia. This would be the most common reason for a knee joint to lock although sometimes a loose body which is a little piece of bone can do the same thing. See an orthopedist. ...Read more
