My left knee sometimes hurts when I stand up, however, it doesn't always. It may also hurt when I'm walking, setting myself down in a chair (but not while actually sitting), or kneeling down. It tends to do so in episodes. So I will go a long time without doing it, but when I do feel it, it tends to go for a short time. I've had this issue for many years (I'm 23 right now), and had grown so use to it that I can't really detail how common the episodes are (as I would usually ignore the pain when it occurs). Sometimes the pain is minor, but sometimes it makes standing up a nightmare.
My left knee sometimes hurts when I use it. What might be causeing it?
Added 26 Mar 2016:
If I try to stand up, while accidentally applying additional downward pressure (placing my hands on my legs and pushing while standing up, something we all do. I believe that act is balance related), it will cause that pain.
As to the pain itself, it feels like a painful pressure underneath the kneecap. The keyword is underneath. Not on the kneecap, or in the back of the knee. Right under the kneecap. Perhaps pressure isn't the exact descriptive word to fit, but it's the closest word I can think of right now.

My right leg becomes numb behind the knee, down the back of my calf to my foot whenever I'm sitting?
