numbness in knee

Five days ago, I noticed, as I was riding in the car and ran my hand across my knee, that it is numb.  No injuries to speak of, or that I can remember.  Now, when I first get up in the morning, or after I have been sitting for a while, I feel a burning pain on the left side (the soft part) of my knee.  The very top of my kneecap is not numb but both sides and bottom part are.  The back of my knee is not.  No other pain!  I just got over being sick for a few days, with a double ear infection.  Had fever and body aches, but no ear pain.  Doc put me on anitbiotics and I am fine now.  I had slept on the couch alot due to the body aches in bed during that time.  Has anyone else had something like this or have any ideas?

It wouldn't hurt to have this checked out.  Is it swollen at all?
