In brief: Patellar tendinitis
You appear to be describing a classic case of patellar tendinitis.
A common overuse type injury tht is almost always amenable to nonoperative treatment. Static quadriceps stretching usually helps resolve this complaint. Nsaids such as motrin, naproxen, or advil (ibuprofen) can also help. If no improvement after several weeks arrange for an evaluation by your physician.
