Title: Sharp knee pain
Post by: Jayveesee on June 23, 2009, 11:34:13 PM

Yesterday I experienced a sharp pain in my right knee when I tried to kneel down.  Now, whenever I bend my knee to ~90 degree angle and put any sort of weight on that leg (like when I'm squatting down), I feel that sharp pain toward the top of the kneecap.  However, I can walk/run just fine, and put weight on it if my leg is straightened.  I can also bend the knee just fine as long as there isn't any weight on it.  I only feel the pain when I bend the knee and put weight on it.  I'm 30 years old and never had a history of arthritis or injury in that area.  Any insight into what may be causing this would be very helpful.

On the inner aspect or the outer aspect of the kneecap?
