63 yr. old female, former housecleaner for approximately 15 years. Have osteoarthritis but developed a new problem with my knee a few years ago while kneeling only. I was cleaning, knelt down on my right knee and had a ripping burning painful sensation to my right knee on the outer side, maybe a tiny bit below the knee cap itself. I quickly moved, it stopped within a few moments but couldn't kneel again. It seemed to dissipate after a few years but came back when I got down on all four playing with kids and pets. Just the right knee. I can say I actually had to look to see if I had ripped the skin it hurt that badly and of course there was nothing there. Hard surfaces and trying to crawl make it impossible. I don't understand why it went away but I've since retired yet it acted up again last night and continues. Possibly a ligament, tendon, sheath? More like skin pulling away. Have not noted swelling or redness. I will go to my primary tomorrow but hoping to get diagnosed so I don't have to wait the long period to see an orthopedic.
