Pin prick sensation on knee cap when bending or straightening leg. Related to wearing heels?

Occasionally when I bend or straighten my leg, I feel a very brief and slight but god-awful pin prick sensation just medial to my right knee cap, and more superficial than deep. It s doing it almost every time I bend or straighten my leg today so I have been going to great lengths to avoid that very nasty feeling. I do have heels on and wonder it if is related. Just trying to get an idea of potential causes. Thanks for any info!

the potential cause of such pain might be due to stress on the medial side of right knee cap. it can be due to improper heel shoes or high heels. it can also be due to alter in your walking pattern i.e. standing on right leg more than left, or walking stride more on right side... try some calf stretch and quadricep strenghtening it might help to relief pain
