What causes a burning sensation in the knees and what can I do for this? I have some swelling there too when I stand up for a long time. Thanks for any advice.
Pain in the knees after standing sounds a lot like joint arthritis, maybe osteoarthritis from old, creaky worn out knees. Standing is a weight-bearing activity that can stress a joint that lacks healthy, protective cartilage. You may want to try different shoes that provide good support, soft cushioning, and are flat.
If you do not have old joints, maybe you have bursitis or tendonitis... the overall theme here is an inflammed joint. Taking an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory might be helpful if you do not have any reason not to use an NSAID. Talk to your doctor, get a proper diagnosis after an exam, and then you will find the right solution for you.
