Meniscal Injury: You could be describing an intrinsic knee injury such as a meniscal injury. You need an exam and likely imaging with MRI for diagnosis.

It depends: It depends on which part of your knee is painful. For example, if the pain is in the back of the knee with straightening, it could be a tendinitis, Baker's Cyst, or meniscus injury. There is a small muscle that can be injured or strained called the popliteus that may also be involved. You should be evaluated by a physical medicine specialist or orthopedist for a more accurate diagnosis.
