I have jumper's knee and it totally sucks. My left knee feels okay some of the time, but aches frequently, sometimes so bad that I feel like I can't stand it. It wakes me up at night and makes me nervous about doing certain things. I've had this problem for at least a year a half and it doesn't seem like it's getting better.

At first the doctors thought I had patellofemoral pain syndrome, but I'm pretty sure I've had tendonitis all along. I might have both, but it's really the lower part of my knee that hurts the most (which would be jumper's knee).
It seems to hurt when I'm cold or when I haven't moved in a while, but sometimes it seems like it's totally out of the blue.
I've heard it's pretty common, and I see people at the gym wearing the "jumper's knee" brace/strap all the time:
I'm trying to research what I can do to feel better. Heat and Tylenol seem to work, but I want to heal and put this jumper's knee behind me already! I'm going to a physical therapy consultation next week... hopefully that will help.
Has anyone else had a similar problem and did anything help you?
