Itching, Burning Pain On The Inner Knee?

I have a burning, itching, stinging feeling on the inside of my right knee. I've had it for a while, and now when I bend it it hurts. Can anyone tell me why?

Answer

Well, this could be a number of different issues including an infection in the joint, arthritis in the joint, and/or an injured nerve. It's hard to tell without examining the joint and having all the necessary imagine studies to see what's going in the knee itself. You'll need to see a doctor to get a definite diagnosis.
