    Dibbz, this sounds like classic symptoms of what is known as patello-femoral pain syndrome. Some of the classic symptoms of this condition is pain on walking up stairs and sitting for long periods of time (called “moviegoers sign”). Although it is unclear of the actual causes of PFS, it is suspected that it has to do with the tracking (movement) of the patella (kneecap) in the femoral groove. If this tracking is abnormal, it can cause pain which feels like it comes from right under the patella.

    I’ve posted an article at if you are interested in learning more on how to deal with this condition. Good luck!
