Rear knne pain/catching

I had an ACL allograft 19 months ago. I stepped up my activity last March and was doing fine until I began having a tired and swollen feeling in my knee. I then began having a pulling and catching sensation in the back of my knee on the inside where the tendon/ligament/ITB band crosses the joint. It would only happen after I had been sitting with my knee bent and as I stood andattempted to FULLY extended my leg. I couldnt full straighten it until after a few minutes or until after I stretched my hammy.

This problem would go away with rest and would return upon resuming exercise. I changed my exercise plan and rode a bike all summer and never had a relapse. Now that winter has arrived I have gone back to the same old program and the problem is returning.

What can this possibly be? Do I have a pulled muscle in my hammy or one of the small muscles on the back of the knee? It feels like a catch but with a spasm as well.
