Yes it always burning and it also feels like something is grinding, when i kneel or just bend the knee it pops and cracks. When i say "inside" its my right knee but the pain is on the left side. and yes it aches it doesnt help to keep straight or bent. i take tylenol and advil but nothing really seems to help, Its been hurting little over a month now....Thank you for your help

Hello and Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am glad that you found us and took the time to post.

The knee is a complex joint. There are numerous conditions including structural issues that effect the knee. Your pain could be from arthritis or a patella problem. Some imagining will probably be required to determine the source of your pain.

I am sorry I cannot be more specific. If you offer more information we may be able to provide you with additional information. Can  you describe the pain? Is it always a burning?  Does it ache also? What makes it better? How long have you experienced this pain? When you say "inside" do you mean under the patella (knee cap)?

I am always sorry to hear that someone has pain....we can relate. I hope you will be able to obtain a diagnosis and effective treatment.

Take Care,
