    I used to have no problem with my right knee. Now all of a sudden i cant even pull my foot behind my bum to stretch my front quads and I cant kneel when doing any jobs around the home.
    I can tho run around on court, upstairs, cycle(gently) no problem.
    Is this the beginning of the cartilidge ? Are there anyways to repair it?

    Hard to say. Could be bursitis. Could be a meniscus (cartilage) problem. Could be the patella (knee cap). It could be a ligament. Get thee to a physician if the problem persists. In the meantime, ice should help for many of these conditions.

    difficult to say as would need more information about specifics - does it feel stiff/swollen/tight? any other activities that hurt? how long does pain last? where exactly on your knee does it hurt? do you get clicking in your knee? does it lock/get stuck in one place and need to be forced in order to move again? is it a sharp pain or more of an ache? is it worse at any particular time of day? if you could answer these I may be able to provide some more insight.
