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

Knee pain: More information is needed. Any extra exercise, crushing impact, lifting, or twisting action recently? These all impact pain development. If you have no allergies try a non-steroidal medicine like motrin / ibuprofen/ advil or aleve/ naproxen with food each dose. Arrange a doctor evaluation ASAP. Depending upon your history you may need an X-ray. Feel better ---
