In brief: Specialist will help

Sounds like chondromalacia patella (cmp) or patellofemoral syndrome (pfs) both essentially the same.
See a sports medicine musculoskeletal specialist, usually a doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) that specializes in omm (osteopathic manual medicine) or nmm (neuromuscular medicine) with a sports medicine background. You'll be prescribed exercises, stretches and usually a brace to reduce pain.
