Hi, your sharp pain and fluid collection (effusion) could be due to the extension of the previous slight tear in your meniscus. An unnoticed twist of your knee while working might have initiated this. Momentarily you can apply ice compressions along with antiinflammatory medications and rest to alleviate your pain. I suggest you to visit an orthopedic surgeon for further evaluation. Good luck
