Could be all manner of things...How did you injure your knee?  Is it swollen as well as stiff? can you kneel, squat, run?  Locking (i.e. not able to straighten) is often a sign of a torn meniscus, usually caused by some twisting injury I think

How old are you?

I'm 53 years old and it just came on, in June I started limping then it went away all summer then flared up in October again on my right knee there is a little swelling on the right side of my knee cap and yes I can kneel but not squat I get a MRI in Febuary but one thing knee speclist did say was I had fluid on the knee and that was a week ago but in the morning my knee is locked up and stiff when I get up and I have to hop around for a bit to be able to walk and even then its bad

can Orthotics irritate your knee?
