See an orthopedist: Then you should see an orthopedist and have the knee evaluated. It is impossible to offer a specific diagnosis without being able to examine the knee and order imaging studies.

Knee pain: I suspect that this is a tendonitis rather than an internal knee derangement of ligament or cartilage damage. If you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve (with food) for a week may relieve the inflammation. If no improvement, consult an orthopedic specialist for diagnosis and treatment. A knee xray or mri may be ordered.
