Lower-back linked "tearing" knee pain?

Hello,
personal data: 24y old male 5'9" 135lbs
Problem: I feel slight pain in my lumbar region (pain is a 2 on a scale of 1-10), but for the last week when i stand up from a sitting position, in the back of my right knee i feel some pain and tension when i extend the knee. The left knee has a different pain, it is in the front and medially from the patella and the pain is a "tearing" pain with skin numbness. The left knee tearing pain has been increasing in intensity since it started.
My theory:
i've noticed while looking in the mirror (facing it) that when i stand it looks like my back is deviated to the left (meaning that my left shoulder stands lower than the right, and there is a greater curvature seen on the left side of the abdoman than on the right side). In my opinion this could be caused by the fact that i spend a lot of time sitting at a desk and when i write with my right hand i tend to lean to the left side.
History: no major accidents or trauma at all. Do not participate in any violent sport and participate in min-moderate exercise.
???: Does this make sense? What can i do? Is it possible to reverse this crooked situation? In what position should i sleep? Any specific Exercises to do at home, any specific way of stretching? (i don't wanna make this worse and would like the pain to stop)
Thank you for your time
