In brief: See Allergist

In the absence of cartilage damage, pain at the front of the knee due to overuse can be managed with a combination of RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation), anti-inflammatory medications, and physiotherapy.
True NSAID allergy very rare so see Allergist to confirm so that this class of medications becomes available to you.

Try acetaminophen (Tylenol) 1000 mg 4x/day. Such therapeutic doses of acetaminophen can be very helpful.
