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?
