Sharp surface skin pain on my knee

I got a new mattress recently, and it's got a thick pillow top. When I get into my bed normally, I put my knee in and swivel into bed. After doing this on my new bed a few times, I have a sharp pain in the skin on my knee. It's fine afterward, and doesn't look any different at all. There is a small area around where it hurts that I can't feel when I scratch it anymore. Now it only hurts when I hit it in a certain way. Specific things are when kneeling on a hard surface, or squatting down. I'll just about forget about it, and then it will hit and I'll nearly loose balance. :(

My initial reaction is that it's nerve damage. Is there anything I can do to remedy this? Or do I just have to wait it out and try to keep off of it?
