See if you can feel around in your hips, upper legs, and lower legs for any tight muscles. Could be hammies, IT band, quads, other muscles in the hip, etc.

Find them and then massage/foam roll/tennis ball them away.

Ice if there's any swelling... heck, if it's patella ice after any exercise.

Report back in a couple days if there's any improvement or anything else.

If you were to see a doc you should seen an ortho.
Thanks Steven. Just curious, what makes you think it's not tendinitis? I don't quite feel any tightness in the other leg muscles (or more tight than they already always are...). But there is an unexplainable weird feeling in my hurt knee's quad going on...

I'll keep it going with the icing, and try the tennis ball massage. Problem is, I don't have to go see an orthos...all my docs are booked up. Hopefully this just gets better...I doubt this is anything that serious requiring surgery...like if i tore my meniscus or something.
