Sharp pain in the right knee that shoot down the leg

Patient

Q: I am healthy 19 year old. i have been having sharp pain in my right knee that it will stop me of what i am doing. I will have the sharp pain about 2 times a day but on some other days it will not have the sharp pain. the pain is like the inside side of my knee but the sharp pain will shoot down my leg. When i was in sixth grade i was in gym class and my knee buckled under me when i was jogging. so i have been wearing a brace but i only wore it off and on, but lately it has not been buckling under me for about 2 years nows. Then all of a sudden i have been getting sharp pain in my right knee and the pain will last at least 2 to 3 mintues, then it goes away.
