I have a burning, stinging severe pain on the outside of my left knee when kneeling...even when climbing onto my soft mattress.
Could be inflammation of distal iliotibial band, could be knee arthritis or meniscal tear.
I would start with NSAID treatment, barring no contraindications (ulcer, kidney disease).
I would at least obtain an X ray of the knee and trial of physical therapy.
You can seek interventional pain medicine, and seek injections.
If symptoms don't resolve, then you should get an MRI.

Do both knes burn, or just one side. ...Read more

Hi Doctors, I notice that when I kneel down to clean, the outside of my right knee hurts but when I turn myself around, my knee is relieved. Why?
Something in the way: Something in the way you move must change some little thing in the delicate combo of muscles, tendons, nerves, etc. Even the bit of additional time since the original position may matter.

Knee: Since the discomfort is not on the center of the knee where the direct pressure is, it may be stretching of ligament or tendon causing the burning sensation.
