This is Dr. David

excessive sensitivity in both knees can be from parasthesias or abnormal nerve function in your legs.

this can come from pinched nerves around your knees or lower back.

you should see a doctor or neurologist specialist to get your nerves examined.

you might need knee MRI scans and lower back MRI scans to check the nerves in these areas.

you might need special nerve tests like nerve conduction test to check your nerves.

do you have a doctor you can see about your knees and sensitivities?
