Hi there.. knee pain upon leg stretching may be due to ligament sprain or tear(most common after sudden stretch or twist), fracture of patella, joint disorders, bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis, septic arthritis or even due to quadriceps muscle(thigh muscle) weakness which leads to give away feeling/pain on stretching leg straight.. home remedies to reduce pain are hot fomentation, application of gels containing diclofenac, knee brace, avoid putting pressure over the knee which is paining, avoid sitting down.. please consult orthopedician once..
