About 3 weeks ago I was shocked at the unexpected sharp needle-like pain that pierced through my upper shin when I knealt down in church. Since that day I can not kneel down on my right knee whithout this horrible pain. When not kneeling there is no noticeable pain. What could it be??
Thank you for your answer. The pain is not in the joint or the bone. Not even in the muscle. It's a piercing pain like a knife or large needle deep in the flesh. Someone told me that it sounds like a bad nerve problem.
It hasn't gone away yet. I'm thinking of seeing a chiropractor if it's a nerve.
Only recently I have had a simialr pain in my left knee, on kneeling I have a sharp needle-like pain which shoots down my left outter knee, this has only happened in the last few days, totally out of the blue, I am able to walk and jog ectc but can not kneel. I had a back attack yesterday when kneeling and today the knee is tender, I am usually an active person, I havent been to my GP yet but am planning to do so, as ideas please?
