Left knee pain while sitting

Hi,
I am 40 years old.

Basically, it's like this...the longer I sit, the more it (my left knee) hurts. If I stand after sitting a long time, I just can't take it, and have to walk around for a couple minutes.
After I walk around for a couple minutes, it feels
absolutely fine. I feel as if nothing is wrong.

And if I walk around all day I'm completely fine(No Pain). I can go up
and down stairs just fine.... it's just the sitting ... if I sit too
long, that's what kills me.

Please advise.

Thanks

Sounds like a tendon or muscle that goes over the knee and is being stretched when you sit down.  Could be a tendon coming down  from the lower back and being  pulled at that point   where it joins the knee bone.

You need to see a Osteopath or a Physiotherapist and they will be able to give you the relief you seek.

try not to sit for very long or take something for the pain.

put your leg up and add a warm rag to the area that hurts
