I've had a sharp pain in my knee for months. I think it's because of squating. Everything I use my knee a lot like on a lot of stairs or squating I get a sharp pain. I've been not squating for months now but still staying active. My knees still get the sharp pain sometimes. Do I need surgery? I have not been to the doctor
It is hard to say what is going on. There are many things that cause knee pain like this. It can be swelling and/or inflammation of the joint, it could be torn cartilage, it could be that the cartilage is worn down and bone is grating against bone. Depending on the cause, you may or may not need surgery. You need to see an orthopedic specialist so they can exam you and find the cause. Most of the time, treatment can be done without surgery but again, it depends on the cause. Doctors usually try to treat things conservatively with medications or injections or even physical therapy. Surgery is often a last resort.
