Customer Question
Knee pain. Front of...

Knee pain. Front of the knee. Below the knee cap in the soft area, just a bit to the right. No pain when you press on that area. But when I kneel down, OMG! I get an acute stinging/burning sensation and I cant kneel on the knee. I am 56 and not history of knee problems. So what do you think might be the issue? BTW, Hi Pearl and thanks for helping.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?

Maybe a week. No other discomfort. Just kind of noticed it.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
