Sprain: At the very least you sprained your knee, meaning that you overstressed the internal structures like ligaments and cartilage. Rap your knee, avoid any painful activities, use ice. If you are not much better within 24 hours see your doc.

Several possible: Sprain of the knee or bruise is the commonest knee injury after an accidental fall. Fracture of the patella, ligament or knee cartilage injury are also possible. A thorough exam by an experienced physician will be able to determine the most likely cause and appropriate treatment.
