I too am experience a hot flush just on the top of my left foot. It might happen up to half a dozen times a day, at various times when I'm doing various things. Very weird. Feels a bit like someone just pouring a cup full of luke warm water on top of my foot. Only last 3-5 seconds. No other flushes anywhere. 39yo male, reasonably healthy. Any Ideas?

I am a 54 year old female experiencing the hot flash on the top of my feet. It lasts for few seconds, several times a day. What could be causing this to happen?

Hot flash on feet
Well thank goodness it's not just me - I thought i must be going mad! For the last few days I've been getting what can only be described as a "hot flash" on the top of my right foor, between the toes and the middle of the foot. Like some above, it only lasts a few seconds, but very strange. I'm a 43 year old female. I too would like to know what's causing this.

I am experiencing the same thing, and sadly I am only 22 years old (male). My symptoms are in my right foot and I get this burning/hot feeling in my foot. It lasts only for a few moments and then vanishes. There is no warning for it and happens, on average, at least 30 times a day for me.

I'm an IT technician so I'm skilled with computers, and after doing comprehensive research on the Internet I discovered 3 possible causes for having hot flashes/burning sensations in your feet.

1) Venous Disease - Basically, you could have a blood clot in your legs that could be causing the problem. If you are also noticing reddish spots or spider/Vericous veins on your ankles then this is most likely the problem. Swelling of your feet or ankles is also a symptom.

2) Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy - Yes, it's true, this problem could be a result of Diabetes. According to my research, Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy can cause your nerves to misfire, and as a result cause you to feel a burning pain/hot flash in your foot. The best way to treat this is to treat the diabetes. If left untreated you could suffer worsening pain as a result of the nerves misfiring.

3) Peripheral Neuropathy - Same as above except not related to diabetes. Peripheral Neuropathy can be caused by other diseases and problems in your body.


IMO, if you are overweight and/or generally unhealthy (like I am), then I would look into numbers 1 and 2 as these would most likely fit your classification.

If you consider yourself to be generally healthy and in good physical condition then I would look into number 3 and try to find other reason as to the cause of your Peripheral Neuropathy.

Hope this helps!

My hands and feet get hot and tingly. I am afraid I have "Peripheral Neuropathy" - I guess I'll go see a doctor. I hope this isn't serious, and that I can heal easily. It's not very painful, just uncomfortable weird feeling.

Best not to self-dx...could be deadly. A through exam by a qualified physician / specialist would be ideal Smile

I made an appointment with my doctor. She can't see me until Dec. - about 2 months from now.

Is it OK to wait that long? I am worried. Peripheral Neuropathy sounds scary.
My hands feel weird.

i am a 44 year old male ex US Military now living in Australia, served in Somalia, iRaq and Afghanistan wars but never came back a human. Now all i do is play on the computer 24/7 since i lost my job as well as drifting from job to jobs, exacerbated by the fact that our Oil Rig The West Atlas got burnt down by fire off Timor Sea in Australia.

I noticed a few times my left foot swelled up i thought it was because i am too lazy to move around and sat on my computer 24/7 for 12 months straight.

I am over weight by 10 kilos i really should be around 74 but i am almost 84kg

My feet always feels like someone poured really hot water on them and they are always hot for at least until i get off my lazy butt and walk around but even then i still feel a lot of hot flash like heat on my feet.

Am i dying? I don't care if i die because i deserve to die i hate my life and myself.

Sometimes i feel a short sharp pain on my lower left top part of my forearm too.


I am a 44 year old loser and wanting to die anyway. I just hate this forsaken world that is so cruel to children that are caught in the world of Greed and Oil for gain.

Warm Feet
I have the same symptoms in my feet. I want to preface my next statement by saying that I didn't go to the doctor for that specific reason. I was diagnosed with Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. The warm foot was a symptom; however, the major issues were chronic fatigue and joint pain. At the time I didn't mention the warm foot sensation to the doctor so I'm not sure if there is a connection. I'll mention it on my next follow-up.

I was also diagnosed with Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis a couple of weeks ago. I am a 33 year old female. I've also had the 'hot water' flush but it is in my right ankle. I first noticed it about 2 weeks ago and it's becoming more frequent each day. I've got up this morning and to my dismay it seems like it is happening every 1 minute or so. I haven't mentioned this to my specialist but definitely will on the next appointment (in two weeks time). Note: My Lupus & Rheumatoid Arthritis flared up due to pregnancy hormones apparently. I'll let you know what the specialist says about it!

Same thing here! Hot flashes on top of right foot to lower ankle. The area is about 4x4, 4x3. and it Happens every few minutes now anywhere from 2 to 11 seconds long. Feels like warm air is blowing on one area. My first thought was necrotizing fasciitis but I would think there would be other symptoms and it would have spread by now. Dunno, 3 weeks now and not worried enough to see someone. Female 24
