Chronic patellar tendonitis

I have chronic patellar tendonitis. It will become painful and visibly red on both knees just from standing up after a half hour or so. I find it worse just standing still then moving around for some reason. Anyway, the doctor has told me to go for physical therapy but i can't afford it and have no insurance. Anybody have any tips to treat it at home?

Oh, and i sleep on my side and have for my whole life. But nowadays i wake up with my knees in pain from sleeping that way, its like a aching pain and it seems lying on my back with my legs straight help the pain. Is this from the tendonitis? I am only 25 and not overweight or anything.
