: hello; for the past few weeks I have been experiencing a pain in my
: knee, it is just to the outside of the patella. It is a
: very sharp pain, like hitting a raw nerve, or like an electrical shock.
: it happens totally at random. It can happen when I am walking,
: sitting, sleeping, etc. When the pain is not occurring, my knee feels
: completely normal. When it happens, it usually happens every few
: seconds or minutes, then stops for several hours. I am not aware of
: any injury or unusual stress to that area. Any ideas?

I guess this is not the correct forum to put that question.. Try another onw, about bone conditions or so.

My first thought is tendonitis. Have you been overusing it by any chance? Maybe seeing your doctor about some exercises that would help to strengthen your quadriceps might help with the problem if that's the case. Hope it feels better!

It does sound like tendonitis (sp) you should go to a specialist who deals with backs knees and feet. They will be able to let you know what may be wrong with it and they also may have you do an mri on it to see if its the tendons.
