Sharp Leg Pain

For the past few months I have been experiencing this sharp, electric shock like pain in my left leg (it happens directly to the left of my knee where the leg bends.  All of a sudden I will get these sharp pains that last only a few seconds.  Today I was sitting in my car and I actually screamed when it happen because it was really sharp this time.  (That would be embarrsing to do if I was in a work meeting or in an interview if that pain were to happen).  I get the pains perhaps a few times a week.  Any reason why I am getting these sharp pains?  I don't have any injuries that I know of.  Sometimes my left knee might feel a bit weak while i'm excercising, but its not frequent.  I excercise 5 times a week for an hour (moderate to intense).  Am I straining my legs too much?  But why is it only happening in one leg and not the other?  Any recommendations?  Should I be worried for a deeper underlying cause?
