Knee Pain after cross legged for some time.

Patient : After crossing my legs for sometime say 15 mins plus; when I straighten them, gives me some pain which is recurring almost every time. The pain is only limited to my knee area for less than 3 seconds while I straighten my leg. It then goes off. Also sometime when my legs are in one position be it stright or crossed, i try to stand up say after half an hour, I may not be able to do so immediately. i.e. my leg does not take that initial Load. But in moments, I am good again like before. What could be the cause here ?
