I have something similar to what you describe. Common name is "runner's knee"---you can look it up and see if you have more symptoms of it (you don't have to be runner to have this problem). But basically the kneecap isn't tracking properly and can cause pain, especially after a time of increased exercise. Ibuprofen will help with the inflammation, but glucosamin-chondroitin will help with the joints. Icing and this ointment called Tiger Balm has helped soothe the joints. Also taking a good amount of time to stretch after the workout. Maybe you should consider knee braces...simple Ace brand that look like a band with a hole for your kneecap...to stabilize your knee.
