Thanks for posting your query.

According to your description , knee pain seems to be inflammatory in nature. It can be due to muscular strain.

I advice you to give you rest to your foot, take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily) to reduce pain and inflammation and consult your doctor for thorough examination of knee and rule out any infective cause.

Wishing you good health
