The knee joint is commonly affected by joint disorders like arthritis, most commonly osteoarthritis, which is caused by excessive wear and tear of the joint. Rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune form and other forms of arthritis affecting the knee joint, can also cause knee pain when squatting or bending the knees. Sometimes, joint infections or other infections in the body, which can spread to the knee joint, can also cause knee pain on bending or squatting. Such cases may have additional symptoms like fever, swelling, redness and warmth of the joint and may require thorough evaluation. Other conditions like patella-femoral pain, anterior knee pain, chondromalacia patella, mal-alignment can also contribute to knee pain when squatting or bending.

That might be due to knee pain or it might be due to ankle pain. Our suggestion would be to do hot water fermentation along with Cold (ice) therapy. You shall also keep a pillow under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes.
