That's a good question, I think it may have been irritated from extending my knee too much on deadlifts a long time ago. I have had it for awhile now, but that is just speculation on my part. There was never a definitive moment when I got it.
It usually doesn't bother me (and, in fact, the pain went away fairly quickly), but sometimes it acts up.
