How much is the pain? Do you see any swelling there?

Generally you need an X-ray to check the knee joint, if there's swelling it may be necessary to test the fluid in the knee joint cavity.

Pain means inflammation in the knee. Possible reason: arthritis,Ligament tear,Meniscus injury,etc.

You should see a doctor and have test to find out the cause.
Wow!! You just saved the life of my knee with that absolute genius recommendation!! Forever thankful!! Do you happen to practice orthopedic medicine anywhere near Virginia?
I tripped over my dog 4 days ago landing on my right knee !
For the first 2 days I couldn't move the rt leg at all !
Now I can move,bend,and even walk. But for some reason I can't straighten my leg out and theirs a bump at back of knee !
I am afraid there is tear in the ligament or tendon of the knee. You'd better see a bone doctor ASAP.
That sounds like torn ligament, maybe posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury. Signs and symptoms of torn ligament are:
Pain. Mild to moderate pain in the knee can cause a slight limp or difficulty walking.
Swelling. Knee swelling occurs rapidly, within hours of the injury.
Instability. Your knee might feel loose, as if it's going to give way.
Treatment depends on the extent of your injury and whether it just happened or if you've had it for a while. In most cases, surgery isn't required.
Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) or naproxen sodium (Aleve), can help relieve pain and reduce swelling. If the pain doesn’t reduce, you need to do some therapy. A physical therapist can teach you exercises that will help make your knee stronger and improve its function and stability. You may also need a knee brace or crutches during your rehabilitation.
You can also try the following remedies at home.
Rest. Stay off your injured knee and protect it from further damage. You might need crutches.
Ice. Apply ice packs to your knee for 20 to 30 minutes every three to four hours for two to three days.
Compression. Wrap an elastic bandage around your knee.
Elevation. Lie down and place a pillow under your knee to help reduce swelling.
If the pain is severe, you need to orthopedic surgery or sports medicine department to see a doctor.
I had the third knee replacement. I was walking fine for about seven months and then one day my wife and I went to a restaurant and I started up the steps. With my right leg first and then my left leg which was the one that had the replacement in on the next step. When I started to bring up my right leg I felt something snap or click and I got an awful electrical shock in my knee with a lot of pain. This has been going on for over a year. Every DR I went to says that nothing is wrong. Why Do I have such awful pain in my left Knee? Thank You
Have you done an X-ray? Is it due to malfunction of the implant? If the X-ray is normal, it should not be a concern.
Do you mean pain in the right leg where you have had no knee replacement? The snap sound may be due to broken articular ligaments. You should do a knee MRI scan to find out.
The pain is in the left knee with the replacement done. If the doctors believe the artificial knee joint is working fine, you should be fine. Did they order imaging test like X-ray for you? How did they confirm the hardware is nothing wrong.
Maybe something's wrong with the implant that's why you're in pain. Why can't the doctors figure it out for you? They are costly they're supposed to be helpful.
