What could be the cause of prolonged knee pain ?

I have got pain on left side of my left knee for like 3 weeks now. I don t remember getting hit my knee against anything hard. It just came from nowhere. I feel this pain ONLY when I climb down the stairs, otherwise the pain is mild and negligible. As of now, I am going for my Ballet dance classes where I strain my knees so much. I also apply Volini sometimes at night. But the pain is continuing for weeks now. Could you please suggest me on this? Is it because of cold weather? Should I consult a physician or take some medicine? Thank you so much for helping me out! Cheers Cathy
