Acute pain in knee for first time- Arthritis. Will it happen again?

I am confused and have little information.
For three days, I noticed a slight slip in my knee. Rested it and put heat on it. Got better. Third day- I heard a crunch in my knee and the pain was horrific and did not go away. Took paracetamol and after 12 hours when to the emergency room. Would not put any weight on it.

I had never had arthritis before (I am 65). Was given NSAIDS and another pill to coat my stomach against the NSAIDs. Also started chrondritin and glusamine (this was 10 days ago.)
I have had bed rest (85%) for 9 days.

The pain is gone but I get too giddy from the NSAIDS so stopped today. Will continue supplements and am waiting for some MSM.
My question is- HOW DO I KNOW THS WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN TOMORROW?

I have to drive in a few weeks and am quite concerned that this acute pain could happen agan and leave me incapacitaded!!

Really appreciate yiur cmments-Oh- I will in Span and have limted access to specialists. I will try to line one up after my travels to Morocco after the New Year
