Go and get a second and third opinion from patella knee specialists. And work with a physiotherapist to get all of the leg muscles working in balance (also hips and ankles); does taping the patella into a better position relieve the pain? steroid will reduce inflammation but won't address the cause

There are potentially surgical options, but you need an expert to advise
