    What can cause sharp knee pain when kneeling?

    I am a 55 year old male.  I exercise regularly (5x a week) for about an hour on the elliptical trainer.  When kneeling on a hard surface (like hardwood floors), I feel a pain like I am kneeling on broken glass or screws.  Other than this condition, I have no other pain or stiffness with the knee.  What is going on?


    Thanks in advance.

    Did you get any answers elsewhere for this - I have the EXACT same symptoms - just like you knelt on a screw - agony & then it's gone - nothing to look at on your knee either - other than a knee! - no marks, no redness, no swelling READ MORE

    I have that as well. Only in 1 knee. I can feel a little difference in one knee to the other but have no idea what this is. I really can live with this so I thought maybe an answer on the internet maybe the answer before heading to the doc.
