Kneecap: you need to be examined for correct diagnosis but it sounds like your kneecap may be the cause.squatting loads the kneecap into the trochlea(groove in femur bone) and can irritate the kneecap cartilage(chondromalacia).Try stretching your hamstrings more before squats/lunges etc.Ibuprofen may be helpful.See an orthopedic surgeon if cont'd pain/popping after discussing w/parent(s). best of luck! ...Read more

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

Sometimes when I bend my knee far enough or kneel on it, one location on my knee cap feels like it is burning. Is there anything I can do?
Likely bursitis: Sounds like inflammation of the prepatellar bursa (flattened sac that provides protective layer between knee and skin). Usually a result of prolonged kneeling or other "wear-and-tear". Rest (avoid kneeling) and sometimes a knee wrap for protection is helpful. If no contraindications, can use nsaids for inflammation. See a physician for an exam to be sure. ...Read more

I am 42, no history of knee injury. Recently i get a burning sensation just beneath my knee cap when kneeling. No knee pain otherwise. Any ideas?
Early wear and tear: Pain coud be due to irritated/early wear of the patella cartilage or the surface cartilage of the thigh bone that rubs against the patella (try knee sleeve with a cutout for knee cap). Other causes could include patellar tendonitis (try knee strap) or a plica and osgood schlatters. For starters avoid kneeling, stairs, knee extension machines, deep squats, lunges etc. Try therapy, ice, advil/alleve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Knee pain: Pain at the top of the patella where your quadriceps inserts is quadriceps tendonitis. Eccentric strengthening of the quads as well as core strengthening can help.
