I have a torn meniscus that has recently been causing pain again. I also have a tingling sensation and my knee gets stiff. Zhould I get arthroscopy?
Sciatic stimulation: You have identified your sciatic notch and are stimulating the nerve going through that area. Congratulations. Your prize is stinging sensations all the way down to the knee and if you keep probing you could get it to shoot right into the big toe! What may be cooler is if you could stimulate your own sciatic nerve and have someone else feel the zap behind their knee! That'd be crazy! LOL ...Read more

What would cause very localized tingling in outer knee cap? The sensation happens when I bend inward or outward.
Localized tingling in outer knee cap: Have you ever had an injury of the knee, such as in a MVA, or a bad fall, other similar event? have you seen a Dr? have you had imaging studies of the knee?

Possible causes of sudden knee swelling on the outside of the knee. No pain. Slight tingling sensation. Wasn't injured. Feels like it needs to pop?
Knee Pain: Pain on the outside of the knee is not very specific. Is that the only symptom ? Some people have a plica which is folding of the tissue within the lining (synovium) of the knee. It will sometimes cause a catching or popping sensation above the joint line. It is a difficult diagnosis to make unless you can reproduce it in the physician's office. I would monitor it and if it bothers you call md. ...Read more
