Pain behind knee: When the focal area of knee pain is in the back (called the "poplieteal fossa"), one disorder to suspect is a large cyst behind the knee joint, which is known as a baker's cyst.

My right knee hurts when I try to walk after sitting for about 10mins, sometimes it barely carries my weight but usually eases of after 3 mins. Help?
Something is wrong: but cannot say in your particular case, but generally, "barely carries my weight" does NOT improve with continually walking. Stiffness does and that is a function of the inflammatory fluid in the knee. Besides aleve (naproxen) and an acewrap, there's lots orthopedics can do. ...Read more

Interesting: The character of the pain sounds neurologic and should be examined by the doctors treating your serious neck condition. Spinal stenosis can affect both neck and back in those who have the condition early in life. Trauma to the knee can give local symptoms because it is a bony joint with a superficial nerve that is vulnerable to bumps. It is safe to "watch it" if you stay active. ...Read more
