About a year ago, I noticed an indentation in the area above my left knee. It isn't constant, but it is there each day. In circumference, my left knee is now smaller than my right knee. I also am now experiencing severe pain in my left knee if I try to flex it or straighten my leg after a period of stillness. Before the pain began, my doctor told me it was nothing to worry about, but I'm not sure I believe that. Any ideas?
