Sometimes when I bend my knee far enough or kneel on it, one location on my knee cap feels like it is burning. Is there anything I can do?
Likely bursitis: Sounds like inflammation of the prepatellar bursa (flattened sac that provides protective layer between knee and skin). Usually a result of prolonged kneeling or other "wear-and-tear". Rest (avoid kneeling) and sometimes a knee wrap for protection is helpful. If no contraindications, can use nsaids for inflammation.

Nonspecific: These symptoms are nondiagnostic but may be due to some irritation of superficial nerve cells in the skin rather than a true inflammatory process of a tendon.
