Hi, Thanks for query.
You have not mentioned your age.
If you are elderly then it is most likely that you might be having some degenerative changes in your knee joint.
You might have osteo artheritis changes in your joint,degenerative changes in your knee muscles,ligaments or cartilages.
Wait till you get appointment of orthopedic surgeon and get examined.
Ok and bye.
