Burning on the left side of my knee

BarMcBBarMc Posts: 24
Hi - I have a chronic back problem after four unsuccessful surgeries but have recently started with a terrible burning pain on the left side of my left knee and if I try and kneel on it, it feels like a needle going into my knee - could it related to my back problems?


  • I hope you contact your Dr. and let him know what's going on and he may order more tests. Does the knee burn, hurt when you're in a certain position like turning your back? You can look at a dermatone chart and see what disc controls certain areas of the body. I'm not saying it's the disc is causing the burning as I'm not a Dr. Please keep us posted how you're doing and what your Dr. says. Take care. Charry
