Knee Pain....

I have been dealing with knee pain for about 3 years now, but there was no direct injury. There has been times when my knee has given out/buckled and has been causing severe pain from time to time, there is always pain just different levels of pain not always consistant. The pain is right around the knee area and has spread down the leg a little bit from time to time. When I say around the knee I mean all around the knee, typically on either side of the cap, under the cap, and behind the knee on back of leg.
I have had xrays, MRI's, cortison shots, supartz, and scope done. No treatment thus far has fixed it. The pain with the cortison shots was relieved for only about 3-5hours. The pain with the supartz shots was relieved for about 1-2 days. The pain did not go away after the scope, but the doctor did clear up some arthritis under the knee cap and also ground down the back of the knee cap. Xray and MRI results apparently have come back inconclusive.
I was wondering if anyone was dealing with the same issue or if anyone knew what the problem may be.
Thank you.
