Both knees were weak, but 90% of the pain came from my left knee.  My left knee has a patella tracking issue which my right knee doesn’t.  I suspect this additional underlying issue made my left knee more susceptible to patellofemoral pain, although i know that thoughtful doctors such as Scott Dye have refuted patella-tracking PFPS hypothesis.
