In brief: Knee pain on standin
Pain in the back of your knee that worsens as the day goes by and resolves overnight is typically due to a bakers cyst.
This is a fluid filled sac that forms in the popliteal fossa, which is a space behind your knee joint. It will cause you pain and a felling of fullness, but should not cause leg, knee or calf swelling, redness or heat. Any of those symptom need evaluated by your doctor.
