Overuse problems of the knee :
Can older adults get Osgood Schlatter's? - - Posted by Txygrl (Txygrl), 9 January 2005
I am 61 years old, and have been walking 3.5 miles a day for the last year as part of a weight-loss program. I have developed knobs below my kneecaps which sound like the description of Osgood Schlatter's. The left one is painful, and I cannot kneel on it without a pillow. I do not want to stop walking - I just got a treadmill for the winter months - but I will be needing these knees for a few more years. Any input?

You should go to your GP and get this checked out and then get a referral to an orthopedic surgeon to be assessed.
I found this article and it might help you:
Hope this helps.
