Burning and sharp pain in knee cap
Hi, I am having a burning sensation, kind of like if I have put some icy hot on my knee, and when I set, bend, or sometimes flex my foot there is a sharp pain behind my knee cap as well. What could this be and should I be terribly concerned about it. I am 32 years old and really can't see it being arthritis.

Hi there!

Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infections/ inflammations, inflammations like bursitis, tendonitis, degeneration, arthritis, patellar dislocation, chondromalacia patellae, cyst formation, bone growths/ masses, nerve impingement/ pressure, fractures, etc. I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for an evaluation. After a diagnosis is made it would be managed accordingly. Meanwhile you may try resting the knee. Application of ice-packs or Tylenol may be used for symptomatic relief as well.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
