What causes pain down the outside of my leg when kneeling?

Iliotibial band: It is hard to be sure without an exam, but that sounds like a condition called iliotibial band syndrome.

Pain with kneeling could be irritation at the tendon attachment or possibly wear of the cartilage on the back of the patella.

Pre-patellar bursiti: This sounds like pre-patellar bursitis. That's an inflammation of the tissue in front of the knee. It commonly hurts with kneeling. Would recommend ibuprofen, icing, and rest. Typically resolves with time. ...Read more
