knee pain information needed

Sometime in the past 3-4 days I injured my knee. There was never a specific point where I knew I was injured, it just started hurting one day. I suspect the problem came from starting back on my bicycle. The mechanics of my body versus the bike requires me to rotate my right foot to a high degree to keep it on the pedal.

The pain is just below the knee cap and although it's strongest in the center, it also extends around to the lateral and medial sides. Pressure on that area hurts. Hyperextending (or even full extension) my leg REALLY hurts. It pops frequently and I have to be careful when I'm walking or it can either lock up or it feels like the joint becomes unstable.

The pain is generally only noticeable when I'm standing, walking or put pressure on it.

Any suggestions on what this is likely to be? Ligament damage? Tendonitis? Bursitis? ACL? Other?

I suspect the RICE method is the appropriate treatment but I'd also like to hear any different advice if anyone has any.

Thanks!
