My Knee Burns When I Kneel
I fell at work, hard on my left knee. I have sharp pain when kneeling or even when i touch my knee cap. What happened?
Need X-ray : If you haven't done so already, you need to be examined and have an x-ray. It is possible that you have fractured/broken your knee cap which sometimes requires surgery or at least a brace or cast. If not, then most likely you have sustained a contusion or bone bruise which should improve with time. Other possibilities exist as well & are best determined by an orthopedic evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When I straighten my right leg, my knee locks, and once I bend it my knee cracks, it's painful and also hurts when standing sometimes?
Knee cap tracking: It sounds like you are having problems with knee cap tracking or subluxating. It is common for young females to have loose knee caps that get slightly off tack and cause locking and popping. This could also be cartilage damage or meniscus tearing. You should be evaluated by a knee specialist and possibly get an MRI to make sure there isn't any cartilage damage or tearing. ...Read more
I hit my knee really hard when i fell skating. Now everytime i stretch my knee feels dislodged, but its not swollen or bruised.
When i squat, the top of my knee cap burns. Also, when i lightly touch my knee cap it feels numb. There's no discoloration?
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
Likely knee cap wear: The most common and likely cause of pain in front of the knee is an irritated or early wear of the knee cap cartilage or the surface cartilage of the thigh bone that it rubs. Other causes could include a meniscus tear, plica, patellar tendonitis etc. Some fluid build up in the knee causes cracking. Try therapy, antiinflammatories, ice and sometimes a knee sleeve. See orthopedist. ...Read more

The popping: sensation probably comes from "tracking" abnormalities as your Patella (Knee Cap) "Glides" within the tendon along a groove in your tibia/fibula! It should get "better" as your tendonitis improves. A patella immobilization splint (see right) may help. Hope this helps Good luck Dr Z ...Read more
