Quadriceps-Patella: When you sit on your heels there is a strain on the knee. In this position, the quadriceps tendon is fully extended. When this muscle contracts, it fully extends the leg. If this muscle and tendon are tight, this could cause such pain. If this persists, have it looked at. ...Read more

Swolen knee?: At your age, osteoarthritis is certainly a possibility. This may be age-related degeneration of the knee joint. Swelling is not uncommon. Xrays will help assess. Watch for redness of your skin or fevers/chills or feeling sick. This could suggest an infection. You should be seen by a doctor. ...Read more

I have a problem where it is hard to bend my knee fully I cycle about 100 miles a week on mountain bike this does not cause problem but I miss running?

Possible: Knee effusion (fluid on the knee) or internal derangement. If it bothers you enough you may want to consult with a sports medicine doctor as draining of an effusion can often help restore mobility when it is the cause. Ultrasound is useful for effusion diagnosis but MRI is best overall test for knee evaluation (usually after plain x-rays obtained). ...Read more

Sounds like: You may have a "loose body"...see your Orthopedist who may wish to obtain an MRI or MRI Arthrogram!

It is NOT "normal" don't wait!

Please see answer: If you want a second opinion I suggest asking for a Virtual online second opinion consultation with a Health Tap Orthopedic specialist. It would be helpful if you have copies of x rays and/or reports to upload for the consultation. Meanwhile, I believe the following two educational sites on knee problems will be helpful>http://bit.
