Given that it's on the surface of the knee, perhaps it's related to circulation? Do you have any problems with arthritis or issues INSIDE the knee joint?

cold knee symptoms
i received physio last year for a relaxed muscle around my knee cap, other than that nothing elso wrong with my knee. when the cold sensation comes on, and that is almost every 20 minutes or so, my knee is actually cold to touch.

IS the cold uncomfortable or just weird? Are you looking to diagnose the condition? If so, I'd suggest that you first see an orthopedist, who can refer you to the correct specialist...I'm not sure if you'll need to see a neurologist or a GP or what. It's quite baffling, actually.

Cold sensation on knee
Yes, it does make sense. I have been having the same sensation and have begun to think I was crazy until now. I tore my acl on my right knee and have been feeling this cold sensation, almost wet on my left knee. I have been doing a lot of compensating with that knee but now have begun to wonder if there is some sore of damage to it. Have you found anything out from the dr.?

Cold and wet Knee
My left knee feels the exact same way -- with a cold and 'wet' patch on the right side next to my knee cap. Everyone thinks I'm imagining it, but I swear its a real sensation. I just started exercising frequently...maybe I'm straining my knee? Has your sensations continued?

Cold sensation in knee and lifeless feeling in leg.
Have you resolved your cold sensation? I, too, am experiencing it after having knee surgery in March. At times my knee and actually my entire leg feel lifeless. This comes and goes and is very uncomfortable.
Thanks!

Sounds good --- please let us know the diagnosis...maybe there is fluid in the kneecap? Your experience could help others!

My left knee cap, and sometimes the right one, often feel chilling cold. Extremely uncomfortable. There is also sweat there especially when I sleep with more cover. After wiping off the sweat the knee feel better. It seems there was excesive fluid there that make the knee feel cold. I have no arthritis on one test.

I experience pain when kneeling, i can't even kneel for like a minute because of the pain. It is also painful especially when it is cold. The pain can sometimes wake me in the dawn. Both my knees also gets cold even if the weather is not so cold but as long as the air is humid, it makes my knees cold which results to pain. And I don't know what it is.

Both my knees often feel cold and left is worse. When it happens it's chilling cold and I could be sick annd get cold. If I cover them with thick cotton and other warm stuff I feel much better. I am really get cold, the cold people get in cold weather. It had bothered me since 2000 and no doctor in any field among those more than two dozens has any clue after many many tests. Man, we have to learn our body and care it ourself. I have no faith in those doctors, let alone those sky fees.

You all need to see a Chinese Traditional Therapist. It's really common in their dialogue called Aged Cold Legs. It's mainly due to long living in wet and cold environment. You need to protect your legs and keep them warm always, not to just wear shorts in winter. You probably think it's cool and can't feel the cold when young but the cold penetrates into your legs slowly and builds up without knowing. When our body is not young and energetic, the blood circulation drops and it's the time for the cold built for years to show symptoms such as cold knees and feet. It's not easy to get rid of. Acupuncture with heat lamp may help and you need to keep warm from now on. Otherwise, it will develop to worse situation.
