I have knee pain from running. What should I do?

Strengthen. quadriceps muscles and tape your kneecap based on the direction it goes when your walk or run. This can be accomplished by seeing a sports training physical therapy program. If this isn't helping then consider evaluation by an orthopedic sports medicine specialist.
See your doctor. If rest, ice and elevation for a short period of time does not help, i would have it evaluated by a physician.
