Burning sensation inside knees. What is the cause of this?

I have a burning sensation on the inside of my knees. Not sore to the touch. No known injuries, but I am 69 years old and active (e.g., walking, golfing, yoga). Often the burning sensation intensifies while I am asleep at night. Placing a pillow between my knees when laying on my side helps. Normal wear and tear for my age?
