Hi.. You must have injured your knee.. It needs adequate rest to heal.. Exertion will only make it worse..  An examination by a doctor and imaging test will help in analysing the seriousness of the injury.. Hence get to an orthopedician.. Over the counter analgesics (ibuprofen) may help in pain relief too...
