A 40-year-old male asked:

I was driving and suddenly, I had burning pain in both knees and in my left ankle. I didn't do anything to cause this burning. What can cause this?

A bulging disk: If the burning continues then you most like have a bulging disk. Consult a spine surgeon to get an antiinflamatory program and exercises. You might need a steroid injection. Only 20% of people need surgery.
