Get examination: Your symptoms suggest pain coming from another source , other than the knee. Possibly your lower back., but a good history and physical examination would determine the whether a primary knee problem, lower back issue or peripheral nerve deal. Get examined ! Best of Luck!

Numbness weakness: In a joint or extremity can be from injury or nerve compression, get evaluated by a medical provider very soon before things worsen
