@cldmeyers, I'm glad that you started this new discussion about patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Back in 2012, @jamessenior shared his story of recovery here:

cldmeyers, did you get this injury as a result of being a runner? I'm confident that you still have the memory of how to stand, but it sounds like you might have lost the muscle to do so. How long are you able to stand using assistance? What PT are you doing at home?

I'm 86 and this started last fall (2019). I definitely had not been running. No impact exercise. Standing doesn't seem trouble. I'm doing a lot of exercises for my knees and squats, using my gluteus.
