Pain when bending knee????

I do alot of work on my computer and have a habit of sitting on one of my feet....when you bend your knee and sit on your foot/ankle almost like half crosslegged. I noticed when sitting that way for a few hours, I had a slight pain in my knee. I stopped sitting that way but the pain got worse over the next day or two.
This has been almost 2 months ago and I cannot bend my knee all the way back. When I bend it past about 100 degrees, I get a tightness/pain close to the back of my knee. If I try to force my knee to bend all the way, I get this excruciating pain. I can bend it all the way to sit cross legged without pain, just when I bend it straight back do I get that difficulty bending it.
It isnt a torn maniscus....I have no stability problems and no visible signs of anything (no bruising or anything) and have no problems walking (except when walking for over an hour, it gets worse, the point where I can bend it decreases)
ANY help is MUCH appreciated!!! PLEASE, if ANYONE knows anything about what this might be, PLEASE let me know!!
Thank you!
