Cramp and aching feeling in both legs from knee down sometimes feels like burning sensation. Sometimes pain slightly above knee. On iron tablets as lo?
You don't provide: Your age, but the likely diagnosis might be different if you are a younger vs older woman. The iron may help, but I would also check vitamin D and magnesium as they could also be low and contribute to these symptoms. If older, the diagnosis of neuropathy, often from Type 2 diabetes, comes into play. You need a good medical evaluation and a few lab tests, I think. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Standing on my right knee causes pain that of burning sensation. It lasts secs once I get off knee. No swelling. Fallen on them 10yrs. Nerve damage?
Sounds like you have:
Arthritis, or a meniscal tear. The fall might be responsible for the arthritis, but I think its the daily activities with subtle injuries in a susceptible person resulting in a meniscal tear. Its not a nerve issue.
See an orthopod and I am sure he'll help you.
