    Title says it.
    Just on the inside of my knees there is a sharp pain when doing straddle splits and other similar stretches with open hips and straight legs. It's obviously not the good type of stretching ache one might expect with a deep stretch and it feels like more than just that that is a very tight area.
    Any thoughts other than that I need to work that area or warm up more?

    Are you irritating your medial collateral ligaments? If that's the case, your knee is taking too much force, try to find a way to stretch that puts the force above the knee.
