Hard to say: Have a doc check you. Several things it could be-strain in the ligaments or tendons, a torn meniscus, arthritis. Need to see pcp who can ask more about the problem, and do an exam. If no contraindications, take some Ibuprofen as directed & try an ice pack on it, as well as resting it & wrapping it w ace wrap. These may help it feel better & the doc will be interested if any of these help.
