In brief: PFPS and weakness

Could your patellofemoral pain syndrome be a result of weakness of your thigh muscle? This sensation that you are describing is usually due to a nerve entrapment or nerve dysfunction to the muscle group itself.
You should follow up with a neurologist and have muscle studies performed on your thigh, Good luck
