Burning sensation on the knee caps, clicking sounds. Had been doing the cardio kickboxing. Is that the reason?

I have been doing a cardio kickbox routine for about 2 months...I now have a burning sensation all around/under both knee caps. I have also noticed my knees are clicking while going upstairs or bending my knees and straightening them. Do you have any ideas as to what I ve done to my knees? P.S I also noticed a hot shower eased the burning. Ice does nothing.

Thanks for writing to us.
The burning sensation in your knees and the clicking noise is likely to be due to inflammatory changes in the knee joint. This can happen due to age related degenerative changes. Taking joint lubricants will help you.
