Hi there

I get something like what you are describing quite regularly and was told that its caused by fluid build up in the knee cavity. The knee can hold an amazing amount of fluid before showing obvious signs of swelling, so even if your knee doesnt look swollen it might be anyway. The full feeling you are experiencing is possibly due to this. If so, the usual rest, ice, compression,and elevation procedure along with an anti-inflammatory should help.

Hope this helps
