No
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

If it is burning it could be coming from your low back as a pinched nerve

because burning is always nerve related

are you sure it is the knee joint?

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
