Hot sensation around knee

Recommended Posts

Hey guys . I recently started developing an odd warm sensation around my right knee. I wouldn't call it burning as it's not sore, just feels hot. Lasts for a couple of seconds and then it's gone. I want to spare myself endless runaround. Do I go see a physio, or GPto refer me or what? Any pointers would be appreciated.

Without pictures and drawings with coloured circles and arrows, the Bikehub cannot help  ;)  :D

Interesting. I have developed the same thing on the outside of my knee. Very, very painful to kneel on or bend and sensitive to the touch.

 

Is yours similar to a knock on the funny bone kind of burn?

It doesn't hurt at all. I can ride, jog, gym and kneel normally. Just feels hot

Uni - asking for medical advice on the hub is probably one step below googling the symptoms.

 

If you're worried -  go to your GP - a sensation of heat could be anything from a nerve being squeezed (minor) to a blockage in a vein (potentially life threatening) and a whole lot in between.

 

Caveat - I'm not a doctor.

I would probably just leave it. For me personally I get tingles and hot spots now and again. They don't last long. A week or two. If it was your chest I would be concerned. Maybe give it a few days? Check your cleats. Tiny, half a mil turn inside? If you work it out let us all know please.

A Simple Google search:

 

Burning knee pain may also be caused by tendonitis, which occurs when the patellar tendon (located in the front of the knee) becomes inflamed. If the burning sensation is on the sides of the knee, it is likely Iliotibial Band Syndrome. ... When it becomes inflamed it may cause a burning knee sensation.

 

If any of this is the case, then you would apply the RICE principles (Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation)

 

You can then also go see a physio if you want a faster recovery.

MEAT protocol is by far better as often RICE has been found to counteract the bodies' natural healing response, not to mention increasing muscle loss and thus prolonging overall recovery. MEAT not as comfy as RICE, that's for sure.
