Is that your name? How old are you? Since when are you appreciating these symptoms?
Pain at the level above knee cap can be due to Patello-femoral disorder. When did your pain begin, what were you doing at the time, and what were the initial symptoms? Do you experience any grinding, locking, catching, or giving way of the knee? Grinding is characteristic of osteoarthritis; locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries and osteochondritis dissecans (meniscus injuries are much more common than osteochondritis dissecans); and giving way is more characteristic of ligamentous injuries.
Are there any positions that make your knee more or less comfortable?
Have you tried anything to help the pain and, if yes, has that been successful?
The most important thing about your pain is that your hips are also affected which suggest that you might have some hip joint disorder.
I would be interested to know the answers.
I would like you to visit an orthopaedician and get an imaging study done for your hips and knees.
Keep me informed.
