Hi all. I hope someone can help. I have excruciating sharp pain just outside to the left of my left knee cap that lasts about 10-15 seconds. It happens randomly, without a trigger, and occurs while sitting, lying down, standing walking, sleeping, etc. without warning. I've seen a couple people mention piriformus syndrome or some kind of neuropathy and they say they had some luck treating that. My orthopedist diagnosed me with a torn meniscus and an impinging synovium. I had surgery to correct those, but these symptoms persist. Can anyone help?

I'm a 31 y/o male, not overweight and in decent shape.
