Sharp knee pain

Patient

Q: I have been having some sharp pain in my right knee. The pain would be so bad that it stops me in my tracks it would stay there for a few mintues then go away this has been going on for just a month. I would have at least 2 in one day and the other days i would not have any pain and some days it would be only once. but when i was in 6th grade i was in gym class and i was doing a jog or run and my knee buckled under me. so i started wearing a brace but i wore it maybe for a yr and i have not had any problems until now with the sharp pain that would stop me what i do. Somedays both knees would hurt my my right knee will hurt more, along with that sharp pain. What is a good solution to help this ease the sharp pain or is there something wrong? I am tired of brushing it off. Please
