Nocturnal knee pain: Usually arthritis is the culprit, making it difficult to find a comfortable position at night. Try a pillow between the knees. Check with an orthopedic surgeon for exam and xray to make sure there is nothing more ominous such as a tumor, albeit rare.

Have it evaluated: I will assume your question is what causes knee pain. As you give no information of specifics there are several possible causes. Have it evaluated and then you will know.
