Pain in the knee after few minutes of extending, no pain on walking, relief on bending the knee. No relief with advil and cold compress. Suggestive treatment?

My right knee hurts mostly in the inside after a few minutes of it being extended. I sit on the couch with my leg stretched and it will begin to hurt after 5 minutes or so. It does not hurt to walk although it might be a little stiff. I am a 67 year old female. I only walk for exercise. The pain is so bad that I have to bend my knee for it to stop. I have tried advils and ice.
