Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that you are experiencing the symptoms of anterior (ACL) or posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury or instability. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and PCL hold your knee together, and when either is torn, you can experience knee pain and the symptoms you describe. I suggest that you follow-up with your doctor for closer evaluation to exclude complete torn of the ACL or PCL with knee exam and tests including MRI and X-ray of the knee. Complete or severe partial torn ACL or PCL usually require surgery. Mild to moderate ACL or PCL can be treated with supportive care, including physical therapy, and medication such as Aleve 1-2 pills twice daily as need.
