Question on knee pain

A little background - Started dancing again about two years ago (after 7 year break), and I broke my foot last year (February 2015) so I couldn't dance for a long time. After PT, I took some time off and really started training a few months ago.

Within the past week or so, I've been experiencing some knee pain. Sometimes if my leg is twisted a certain way (like if I'm sitting cross-legged, etc). and I go to move I feel a sharp twinge, which disappears quickly. The pain also moves too - I'll notice it sometimes more off to the side of the knee, or above it, etc.

I don't know if I'm just feeling this because it's overworked and sore (because I'm feeling soreness in the rest of my leg too - specicially my quad and calf muscles/areas), or if I tore or pulled something? Over the past month I've started putting in more practice and doing more.

I do plan on going to the doctor just to be safe, but just wanted to see if anyone has experienced this at all?

Thanks in advance!
