outer knee pain when kneeling

Hi I am a 40 year old woman - slightly overweight but only slightly.
For the last 3 weeks when kneeling and putting weight on my left knee (which i tend to go down onto first) I have had a burning  sensation on the outer part of my left knee. At between 3 and 4 O'clock on the boney bit. It feels as if something is under tension rather than something locking. I feel as if something is about to tear or burst.
Any ideas at all?
No injuries at all and it has got slowly worse rather than a sudden onset. the pain is bad enough to take my breath away!
Thanks penny

Hey Penny!

Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include infection/ inflammations, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, degenerations, injuries sustained by constant low grade trauma, neuro-muscular issues etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile you could try resting the knee. Crepe bandage/ knee braces may be useful for limiting the mobility around the knee joint. OTC NSAIDS may be helpful in providing pain relief as well.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
