First thing you should do is go to a doctor and make sure.
You can get water in the knees from hard bangs to it. Bumped in to something recently?

Yes...buddy.....It is called septic arthritis.
It usually affects weight-bearing joints. It is caused by many possible factors such as an infection, endocarditis, invasive procedures, and intra-articular corticosteroid injection, as well as an injury to the synovium. It causes restricted motion, mild pain, and joint effusions. Diagnosis is confirmed with joint aspiration and analysis and culture of synovial fluids. Which basically means that they just drain the liquid that lubricates your joints, which is what is causing your problem. When they analyze this liquid, they can tell you what caused it (whether it was an infection, disease, or just some blunt injury). I have had family members with it, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
