I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,

This is probably a tendon or ligament issue
I suspect you probably have IT band syndrome
I would see your doctor and get checked
you might need xrays or an MRI of the knee.
