? popliteal cyst?: Your symptoms are likely due to a popliteal cyst, also called a Baker's Cyst. It is a bursal fat pad that has become inflammed from weather or altered gait, among other causes. Anti-inflammatories are often prescribed for it, in fairly high doses, such as ibuprofen 600-800mg three to four times per day. If that doesn't work after a week or so, drainage and steroid injection may be necessary, .

Orthopaedics eval: 31 year old gentleman with bilateral burning posterior knee pain, radiating pain from thigh to calf. You need a physical exam and evaluation from a specialist in orthopaedic surgery. Your physical exam will include a straight leg raising test to evaluate radiculopathy, pain along a spinal nerve from your spine which can radiate to the lower extremities. Imaging tests and other maneuvers will help.

See your pcp: 'burning' pain in the popliteal fossa (behind the knee) and when u stand up sounds like you've irritated your hamstrings. Possibly u strained them somehow w/o knowing about it. Also, popliteal cysts can cause this pain as well. These are seen commonly w/ knee problems like a cartilage tear. See your pcp and possibly referral to orthopedic surgeon. Best of luck!

I have had burning sensation in my knees and elbows for over 2 years now. What could be causing this as it feels like its getting worse.?

Not sure: I am not sure what this could be. Are your joints inflamed? Do you have diabetes? Is is constant? Are you healthy otherwise? Burning only? Any pain? Do you take any medications? I wish I could give more detailed answer, but that is not an easy question.

What can cause a random hot, burning sensation on the left inner thigh about 2.5 inches above the knee? This has escalated to a sharp searing pain.

Entrapment?: If pain is truly random, i.e., not related to position or activity, you might have an entrapment neuropathy of a branch of medial femoral cutaneous nerve--not a common condition. Knee problems often cause pain in that area. Are you having joint stiffness, clicking, locking, swelling, heat?
