    I have very sharp pains in the back of my knee. Sometimes it hurts to even touch. What could this be?? Its been happening for the last couple of months.

    You'll have to see a doctor to find out what this is. Something called "Baker's cyst" - which is basically an accumulation of fluid - can cause swelling and pain in the back of the knee. Sometimes problems with the kneecap cause referred pain to show up in the back of the knee. I'm sure there are other possibilities as well.

     

    A doctor's visit should be able to clear this up. Good luck!
