Thanks for writing to us.
Sudden appearance of pain at the back of the knee could be due to a muscle spasm or a muscle sprain. Most of the times such minor spasms subside on doing adequate rest and hot fomentation., You can also apply a local analgesic gel on the area.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
