Knee discomfort: Hard to say since I don't know your age. If you are in your teens, your growth plate may still be open and the leg may still be growing, which can cause some instability. If you are very active in sports, tendon and ligament trauma can cause this sensation, with fluid possibly present. You should get it evaluated.
