In brief: Be seen

You may very well have patello-femoral syndrome, but it cannot be determined without a physical examination.

In brief: I think so too

Patellofemoral pain syndrome is the most common knee problem encountered in sports medicine.
Typically pain or discomfort seemingly originate from the contact of the posterior surface of the patella (back of the kneecap) with the femur (thigh bone). It is also called chondromalcia of the patella. I would see your doc for an eval and treatment to prevent it getting worse. Good luck.
