Iliotibial band: It is hard to be sure without an exam, but that sounds like a condition called iliotibial band syndrome.

Various quad sets: Depending on your activity level and whether there is patella (kneecap) problems, there are many safe exercises for the quads. I do not recommend knee extension and knee flexion machines, which can make knee problems worse. I prefer straight leg raises, exercise bicycle, and gentle (slow) stairclimbing. Forcing yourself not to limp will also help. Lunges and squats are more difficult but effective. ...Read more
What could cause a sharp, burning and tingling pain in the outside and just below my right patella that is felt only when kneeling?
This can be from inflammation of the patella tendon, it can be from arthritis under the knee cap, it can be from a skin neuroma in that area but all things can be improved if you get examined and the correct diagnosis.
An orthopaedic surgeon would be an appropriate person to help you.

Probably bursitis: Knee pain especially on kneeling is suggestive of bursitis most likely prepatellar bursitis. There are numerous fluid filled sacs on the knee joint that help lubricate it.

I can't kneel on my left knee. It's causes extreme pain. The outside of the knee is sore and feels numb. X-rays negative?
Probably not: When someone kneels down the force is on the attachment point of the patellar tendon to the tibia, and to a lesser degree, the patella itself. Pain with kneeling could be irritation at the tendon attachment or possibly wear of the cartilage on the back of the patella. The treatment involves nsaids if it bothers you enough, as well as quad strengthening using a bike. ...Read more

Hi. I feel pains on my legs at bout kneel and ankle after standing for more than 30 minutes. Is it due to aging? I am about to clock 40 years. Thanks
Not Age necessarily:
Leg pain has many causes. The most common is muscle and/or joint pain. Make sure you have good supportive shoes and you may need orthotics (Custom made insoles)
Have your circulation checked. Many people have blockages in their arteries that slow blood-flow to the muscles and that causes them to tire quickly when standing and walking.

Neurapraxia: Neurapraxia is the mildest form of crush injury to a nerve, where the axon and myelin sheath are still intact. The transient reduction of blood flow from repeated crush injury (i.e. Kneeling for over an hour) leads to loss of sensory +/- motor function, which may take up to 8 weeks to completely recover, but happens earlier in most cases. The sensation will come back, give it time to heal. ...Read more

A few weeks ago my knee got very painful when I kneel, now I have a constant pain on the inside of my knee that's is getting worst. What could this be?
Bursitis: This may be an inflammation in the little sack or bursa just over the patella. It normally helps everything "slide" when you bend your knee, but can get irritated, especially if you did a lot of kneeling or caused some inflammation to start. If it is red and painful, it may even be infected so you should get it checked. Try an antiinflammatory in the meantime. Try not to kneel until it is healed. ...Read more
