Thanks for your query.

From description , it seems you might developed muscular or ligamentous injury to your knee .
As pain is severe ,I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. You may get the xray/ MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
