Knee Pain - Trapped Nerve??

I get a lot of pain in my legs always just around my knee, its usually my left leg but sometimes my right. I think it might be trapped or compressed nerves but its always in the same place and is recurring. It happens at least once a month, sometimes up to 5 times a month and is seemingly without cause. The source of the pain is just above my knee (i think) i cant really tell because soon my whole knee is in agony and it quickly spreads throughout my entire leg. At this point im in so much pain and discomfort that i have to get a friend or family member to help me stretch the leg out and put pressure on the knee. This increases the pain but after a few minutes the pain becomes numb and eventually dissapears. I was just wondering what this was and if there was any way to prevent it happening because i was awoken by a particularly bad one at 5am this morning and i couldn't relieve the pain, despite my attempts, so i had to suffer through it with gritted teeth for hours until somebody woke up and could help me. Any information is helpful :)

PS:
Not sure if this helps but the pain is sort of tingly and burns at the same time. Its hard to describe. But the fact that i feel no pain anywhere else AT ALL makes it feel a little bit weird. Anyway thanks again.
