Brief Answer:
Can be due to internal knee injury.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the knee that you have can be related to the internal soft tissue injury or due to the weight gain that is causing extra stress on the knees. You need to get an MRI scan of the knee done to find out the changes in the knee so as to start the treatment. Usually the pain subsides with regular pain killers, weight loss and regular physiotherapy.
Hope this answer is helpful.
Any further questions are welcome.
Regards.
