Left knee buckles while I' m walking

These past couple of days I can' t walk more than a few steps without my left knee suddenly jerking and giving way, causing me to trip.

When I get out of bed in the mornings, I am actually unable to bend this knee.

I definitely didn' t sustain any injury that I know of. It just happened out of the blue. Where could the problem lie?

I suggest that you consult an orthropeadic surgeon, as it is possible that you could have injured one of the ligaments that stabilises the knee joint.
