In brief: Could be many

It would depend on you overall state of health, medications you may be taking and undiagnosed problems.
The knee may have arthritis, ligamentous damage, cartilage damage, infection (doubtful) and other issues. Sounds serious enough to me that you should be seen by pcp or orthopedist and have a good evaluation that may require x-rays and lab studies and of course a thorough physical exam of knee.
