knee pain

My husband has recently not been able to kneel down due to sharp localised type of pain ( feels like touching a needle on the front of his knees). We wondered if this might be a neural pain or some kiind of knee injury - but it comes and goes but hurts when touched with a finger,The sharp pain is intermittent. Gardening, painting etc. are difficult. Many thanks.

Hi, Thank you for your question. Burning sensation, numbness or tingling sensation in any part of body is considered nerve related in origin. This burning sensation you are having can occur due to impingement, irritation or compression of nerve of knee (injury). Please consult your neurologist for a better insight of the situation. Hope this helps.
