Not coincidence: Probably not a coincidence. The only way you will know what is causing the pain is to have the knee examined. I would suggest an orthopedic opinion.

May be your back: A bad knock-knee deformity can make the knee give way becasue it is mechanically unstable, but when the problem is with the knee it usually feels like it wants to give out, but doesn't actually do it. When the knee just goes out on you like its not there; its typically a pinched nerve in your back. Do you have any back pain or numbess with this?

Baker's cyst: This is probably a baker's cyst (also known as a popliteal cyst). It may hurt until something is done about it. See an orthopedist.
