Knee pain. Front of the knee. Below the knee cap in the soft

Customer Question

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.
JA: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?
Customer: Maybe a week. No other discomfort. Just kind of noticed it.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no.
