Apply ice pack for now, consult orthopedic doctor and get properly assessed. Go for MRI as it could be ligament tear.
As a conservative treatment you can go for proper physical rehabilitation.

Quad Clenches: Lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, Hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short Arcs: Lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight Leg Raise: Lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Hello... You mentioned meniscal tear as diagnostic condition... That's why you are having are having jerky feeling... Depending on grade of tear treatment will be decided... If it's mild tear rest to leg and physiotherapy is sufficient. If it's 3rd degree tear surgery is only option.. X ray is required to diagnose ..
