No feeling in my knee cap
« on: August 08, 2014, 04:58:42 PM »
I have a problem with my left knee. When touching my knee cap there is no feeling (numb). What can this be?

Thanks for the help,
Mike

Have you injured it?  How long has it been like that? What did your doctor say?

No one on the Internet could tell you so you'll need to seek medical advice if not done so

Good luck :)

Have not been to the doctor yet. Woke up this morning and it was that way. Have not hurt it that I know of

Thanks

Slept on it oddly, nerves can go to sleep like that, my forearm does this. 

Massage it, ice it, see a doctor on Monday if concerned?  I doubt it's serious if you've not injured it but I am not a medic

Hi Mike

A trip to the doctor is a priority as it maybe something or nothing, but must be checked out.
