Thanks for asking me to respond. It's likely that you have a torn meniscus resulting from the fall. The loose flap of meniscus often causes locking of the knee joint. You need to visit an ortho surgeon who can prescribe you meds to bring your pain down. He may also offer an MRI of the knee to establish the diagnosis. I cannot prescribe meds as Practo prohibits me from doing so.

An mri scan is needed in your case for sure. Get a consult from an arthroscopy surgeon.
