Knee pain, pains when i put cross leg. Any suggestion?

My knees have been hurting lately-- not when walking or bending normally, but if I try to sit cross-legged (what we used to call "indian-style" in school) or do that common stretch where you bend your knee at that same angle and put your ankle over the opposite leg. It never used to hurt to do this, and it's pretty painful-- I want to fix it! Any ideas? (If this has any bearing on it, I recently stopped running while my strained achilles tendons heal. So basically, my body is a mess!) I am 23 and female. Thanks for any help!

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

Knee joint is a very complex structure composing of variety of ligaments, bursae, cartillages etc. Problems like bursitis, ligaments tears and sprains can present this way. Physical examination is mandatory to assess this. You may need investigations like x ray, MRI. Kindly follow up with an Orthopedician. Let me know if you have have any clarifications.
