Get it checked: would try some anti inflammatory medication for now. Sounds like a issue incise the knee like a meniscus or cartilage tear. Recommend you follow up with an orthopedist
A 39-year-old female asked:

Get it checked: Severe knee pain with motion in a 39 yo is often a sign of a structural problem within the knee. Often a torn and displaced meniscus fragment will cause pain with simple range of motion. An orthopedist will likely order XRs and an MRI to definitively diagnose the problem. Seek treatment soon as a displaced (bucketed) meniscus should be treated urgently.

Knee instability: It is very common for patients with chondromalacia patella to develop symptoms of the knee giving out. When the body senses pain in the kneecap joint, there is a reflexive inhibition of of the quadriceps muscle (the muscle shuts down momentarily) and the knee feels that it collapses or gives way.
