My Knee

In December of 2008 I triped and fell on my knee and am now expieriencing like someone is sticking a hot skewer in my knee cap. It also crackles when I bend it. Please can you tell me what is causing this and what I can do. I am also taking tylenol pm's at night so I can get a full nights rest and not be woken up by the pain.
