In brief: Knee pain

Could be patellar tendonitis, referred sciatic pain, meniscal tear, synovitis, or just tight quads.
Start with a good quad stretching program.

In brief: Meniscal injury?

Posterior knee pain with prolonged sitting can come from a meniscal injury.
The best thing to do is to do a trial of physical therapy to help reduce inflammation and then strengthen the muscles that protect the knee.
