My knees burn when kneeling on them?

My knees burn when kneeling on them?

Patellar pressure: I agree with dr hadied, but since you feel this when you kneel this suggests pre-patellar bursitis. This is the bursa on top of the kneecap. Sometimes this bursa can swell and even get infected. Burning is a little unusal symptom, usually it is pain. Burning could be due to an effect on the nerves around the knee. Do both knes burn, or just one side. ...Read more

I'm 62 yrs old and have started having discomfort in my left knee when I kneel that feels like a carpet burn, should I be concerned?

Probably not: If you describe the location it would help.

Common symptoms of itbs ileotibial band syndrome (a different problem), are burning pain in the outside part of the knee. Both do well with treatment. ...Read more

My girfreind is having pain behind her knee at the caf muschle it burns sometimes and hurts what could it be?

Bursitis?: The area behind the knee has lots of structures, such as various muscles, nerves, blood vessels, and fluid filled sacs called "bursa". It's possible that in inflammation of the bursa "bursitis" is rubbing on the tibial nerve causing the pain. If this is the case, rest and ice (nore more than 15 minutes at a time) can help, as well as ibuprophen if you can take it.

A doc can evaluate further. ...Read more

I need to ask a question what's wrong with my knee it burns so much like a knife stabbing? Could it be the meniscus? Please help

One possibility: Stabbing pain can be caused by a meniscus tear among other causes. I have seen you ask several questions this week relating to meniscus tears and your knee. You should discuss this with your orthopaedic surgeon and if you are not satisfied don't hesitate to seek a second opinion. It is your knee and you have a right to understand why it hurts and treatment options available. ...Read more

Patellar symptoms: It sounds like you have symptoms at your patella (knee cap). Many young patients have what's called chondromalacia, which refers to worn cartilage behind the patella - this can usually be treated with simple physical therapy. It's also possible to have bursitis (swelling/inflammation) right over the patella, and patellar tendonitis is also possible. See a physician if symptoms persist. ...Read more

I sprained my knee, yes I do wear a brace, but even if I'm not wearing it my knee hurts and burns a lot when I walk on it or when I bend?

Needs evaluation: Knee pain is tricky especially if you are young and athletic. Although breaking bones can happen usually it is the soft structures like the cartilage, the ligaments, the tendons that can cause pain when bending and extending. I would suggest a face to face exam. Your doctor can then recommend the proper test which may include an X ray or an MRI. Good luck. ...Read more
