Could a burning sensation in my left knee and walking issues be caused by inflammation due to a new injury?

Keep a journal on these kinds of pain, the timing when it happens, and what you are doing at that time, every time you do something to trigger the pain. If it keeps coming back then we can do a quick blood test.
