If you have problems with your other knee, probably can be some overuse history, unless you haven't been out for accident.
If you have time for RICE, try that for some more days and be sure you do that. A overuse injury take a lot of time to heal.
If you not start to feel better soon go see  your GP or call your OS. A&E is not for problems like this.

Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.

I'm not sure if you're in the UK or the US but I agree with Nettan please don't go to the ER for this. It's not an emergency. If it persists just make an appointment with your OS and have it checked out. Overuse is pretty common in your "good knee" after an injury.
