burning sensation
« on: September 10, 2005, 05:50:54 AM »
A simple touch to the soft part just below the kneecap brings a burning sensation, then pain then numbness.  Have you heard of this before?

Looks like you hit a spot of a nerv. Nervpain is often described as a burning sensation and then the numbness also shows it has to do with a nerv. Have you hurt yourself now or is this after a surgery ?

Surgery 6 times left knee torn meniscus, RSDS,chondromalacia, nervdamage cause constant nervpain,chronic inflamm.
Spinaldamage wheeler 100%.
Right knee damaged aug-06, use brace surgery 4/9-07.LCL tear.

I fell on my right knee and after a short period it started burning also. I went to a Ortho Dr. and he said nothing could be done. Time will heal,duh. I ask why was it burning so bad and he said that I probably bruise the nerves.
Anyway I took Mortin for a couple weeks and stayed off of it and it is now better. Don't if this will help or not.
Good luck it does hurt.
