I am NOT a medical professional, however, I had similar symptoms when I had severe tendonitis of the patella tendon. Rest and ice usually made it better for me. If your pain is quite significant and your activity is limited I would consider seeking a medical evaluation.  There is a whole section dedicated to arthritis and patella problems on this site, maybe repost there so you can get more responses?

Good luck,
