You have to recollect if you had any injury in your knee in the recent past. You have to rule out ligament injuries.

What is your age? Rule out osteoarthritis.

There are many other conditions which can give you these symptoms of morning stiffness such as rheumatoid arthritis or rheumatic fever or any other metabolic or auto immune disorders.

For a proper diagnosis you can follow up with an orthopedician or a rheumatologist.

Take care!
