Five days ago, I noticed, as I was riding in the car and ran my hand across my knee
, that it is numb. No injuries to speak of, or that I can remember. Now, when I first get up in the morning, or after I have been sitting for a while, I feel a burning pain on the left side (the soft part) of my knee. The very top of my kneecap is not numb but both sides and bottom part are. The back of my knee is not. No other pain! I just got over being sick for a few days, with a double ear infection.
