Knee pain, no swelling, injury, discomfort while driving. Suggestions?

My left knee hurts all the time. The pain is behind the knee and on the inner side. It hurts more when it is bent, sitting in a chair. For example, driving is very painful. I have to keep lifting and straightening my left knee to stop the pain. What can I do? It does not appear swollen when looking at it. This has been a gradual thing-not due to any injury that I am aware of. Thank you.

In view of your symptoms I am suspicious of a meniscal tear.These are known to cause pain in particularly position and without any associated swelling. And in most cases it is long term issue and cause is wear and tear of meniscus.

A MRI would be ideal to investigate this.MRI can help evaluate most causes of knee pain.
