Cause and treatment for knee pain

Patient : Dull but intense pain for 3 days behind and to the far inside of the knee. Calf area is also slightly inflamed. No visible symptoms. Both areas are very sensitive to touch. Cannot straighten leg without a great deal of pain. Knee is not loose, swollen, or slipping. It does not hurt more or less to go updown steps or to runwalksit. Began hurting day after spending 3 hours working and playing in the snow. What is causing it and is this a serious injury or will it go away in 1 or 2 weeks?
