Sharp burning pain on the outside of left knee, hurts while walking or standing. Suggestions ?

I have a very sharp burning pain on the outside of my left knee . It jets to kneel or even to put pressure like putting my knee down to get into bed. It doesn t hurt while walking or standing. I can barely apply pressure on the left bottom of my knee and I feel the burning shape pain. Before I go to a doctor just wanted to see if it will go away on its own or if I need it looked at

Thanks for writing to us

The fact that your pain is occurring with walking or standing indicates a muscle strain. Any strained muscle when stretched gives severe pain.
I advice you to follow the below mentioned guidelines -
* Give adequate rest to the involved muscle group and avoid any movement that causes pain
* Ice packing once in every 2 hours over the affected area
* Moist heat application to relax the muscles
* Local application of muscle relaxant gel
* Analgesic medications as needed
If you don't find any relief with the above measures, a detailed clinical examination along with appropriate investigations are needed to establish a diagnosis.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
