Hi Gym-Knee

Start by icing the area when it is hurting(10 minutes at least)

But for doing the squat you need to make sure your form is correct - if your middle back is lacing flexibility, especially on the right, it will influence the function of your knee, so make sure it is both flexible and it is in good position while doing your squat.

Weakness behind my knee after sitting but would go away after walking awhile. Now no weakness, just a constant throbbing and sore to the touch.
