Hi ,

I have had a bad feeling from the left leg knee(top of knee cap), while i am get up from the floor with out support ,bad feeling will be start , its duration 5 or 6 minutes only, and there will be notices on the knee , please give me answer what is the reason, is it serious disease 


Hello,

Based on the description of your pain, I definitely do not believe it is a serious condition. Most probably the position of your knee when you are sitting is putting pressure on the patella/knee cap. This can happen more easily when the muscles of the thigh are tight and allow for extra pressure on the patella to build. I would suggest trying to stretch the quad muscles and avoid keeping the knee in a bent position for extended periods.

Hope this helps.
