Today while walking I suddenly had a sharp pain in

Today while walking I suddenly had a sharp pain in my knee. It has ached for 3 hours since. I am most comfortable with it flexed. I can't straighten it. I have pain on the inside of the knee, the outside and behind the knee. When I walk I avoid straightening it as i normally would. This is causing a limp. Sometimes the sharp pain returns when I walk but most of the time it simply aches. I don't see any swelling or discoloration.

I walked on my toes so far, but now even that gets painful when walking, now I try to walk on the inside of my foot to prevent it from hurting. Do you have any suggestions

I was on my back and when I sat up to get out of bed today there was a sudden sharp paid across my back, in back at the belt line. The pain comes back when getting up from a chair and some times while walking. It is sharp. We moved to a new home last Tuesday. I tried to be careful moving things around to get settled in. But I m 88 and this activity may have set me up for what happened. Could it be my spine? Up to now it hasn t been a problem. My wife has mild cognitive problems. I haven t said anything to her. If I admitted myself I m concerned that it would be difficult for her to handle it.
