    When I stretch my leg straight out on my bed and press down with my finger tips i found the pain is in the lower part of my knee cap, not above or below?"

     

    any idea's...thanks A lot...

      To paraphrase some wise person who said that if doing that stretching the leg and pressing on it hurts, stop doing that (couldn't resist).

        Your knee hurts. When you poke it. There's tendons there, and other stuff. Ice it. Rest it. See if it improves. Stop poking it.

        Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

           Torn meniscus.  That's my bet.

          There is only one acceptable pace...all out suicide...

          ...and today is a good day to die!

              Sounds like its patellar tendonitis, opposed to pain underneath the knee cap.  Treat with heat, not ice and when the pain starts to go down, try out some eccentric squats.  You may also find some relief from rolling out and stretching your rectus femoris, which can get really tight and throw off some other things.

                I'd add that in fighting my own patellar tendinitis, I had success rolling my glutes, hamstrings, calves, quads, ITBs and peroneals pre-run.  Takes ~5min and definitely made a difference.
