Patient : I am a girl almost 17. I am very active in cheerleading and softball. I went to the doctor last year for my knee being sore they just said I was very active and just needed to rest. Just about a week or so ago both my knees had the soreness but one went away and the other is know clicking and burning at the top of my patella. Every time I bend down and back up I have a terrible pain. Even sitting on the couch with my knees up is horrible it makes the pains worse. Softball starts on Monday. Should I go to the doctor before then or what could possibly be my problem.
