Why is my kneecap tingling when I work out?

Something is off with my knee and google is failing me. For a couple months now the inside of my right kneecap tingles in a fairly unpleasant way when I work out and specifically when I do scissor crunches. What is going on with my knee?

I feel silly posting this, but I've never had knee problems before and I haven't been able to find much of anything on google. The inside of me kneecap will start to tingle, sort of a cross between pins and needles and slightly feels like it's spasming. It never hurts, but it is an uncomfortable feeling that I very much want to stop once it starts. It happens somewhat randomly when I'm working out, but it always happens when I do scissor crunches sort of like this
, but with my legs lowered more so that they are almost parallel to the ground.
I feel like it has gotten worse over time and I'm not sure whether it is indicative of something that could cause me real problems down road. I haven't gone to the doctor because it isn't actually causing me pain or any other issues. Anyone know what might be going on with my knee?
