You should visit your doctor or an orthpedic surgeon. knees are very complicated and this could be any number of things. :-/ My advice for the time being, is don't kneel if it hurts. I am unable to kneel at all, have been for quite a few years now.
Good luck

Stunned, I guess, and probably mad that you had to pay him to get that advice!  >:(

To be more precise, go see an orthopedic doctor.  Hopefully, an OS would not have waved you off with, "Don't kneel on it."

I guess you could try the "don't kneel on it" method for a while to see if the knee calms down; but if the problem persists for more than a few weeks,  I'd think an actual diagnosis would be in order. If something that needs attention is going on in that knee, you want to know.
