Knee popped, having shooting pains on trying to get up putting pressure on knee. Possible cause?

Last night I was getting up and I was laying on my stomach , and when i got up I guess I was putting all my weight on my knees and my kneecap like turned to the side and it popped and I heard a bunch of other noises and exactly when it happens I got shooting pains all around that area but I could still walk but not very much. So I went to sleep laying on my stomach and my knee can t turn and I can t move my leg what so ever and it hurts really bad. Do you know what this could be?

Thanks for query,
Your knee joint was locked.Due to some abnormal posture this happens that the joint gets locked causes abnormal sound.This causes mild inflammation leads to pain & difficult movement.
Just wait for day or two you will be OK.
