In Reply to: Horrible nerve pain in knee posted by Joanne on May 08, 1998 at 12:34:15:
Hello; for the past few weeks I have been experiencing a pain in my
knee, it is just to the outside of the patella. It is a
very sharp pain, like hitting a raw nerve, or like an electrical shock.
It happens totally at random. It can happen when I am walking,
sitting, sleeping, etc. When the pain is not occurring, my knee feels
completely normal. When it happens, it usually happens every few
seconds or minutes, then stops for several hours. I am not aware of
any injury or unusual stress to that area. Any ideas?
