I have been having heat sensations in my lower legs. It is not painful, but strange. I noticed it four days ago. The heat started below my knee. Now it has moved down my legs and the heat comes and goes. When I go to feel if they are warm, they are normal. It is painless, but strange.
I wonder if this is caused by being on my feet for 8 hours a day, then walking an hour or so at night. Other people who have the same sensations of heat in the legs, I am wondering if your job requires you to stand on your feet for long hours.
I am 32 and have never had such an odd sensation. It is painless, but strange. I hope I can find some clues about what may be going on. The heat may only last in my legs for 10-15 seconds.
Thank you, Michele

Hmmmm
I know my lower legs can get sore from jumping rope, but I don't know why it would have warm sensations for no reason. I dunno, I've heard that blood vessels leading to your lower legs can go off-line sometimes. Maybe u shud see a doctor

Are you doing the same thing when it happens? Pay attention to what you are doing(like getting out of a chair) or have done earlier when these happen(does it happen only after you work AND walk). Do they happen throughout the day or towards the end?

I'd run it by a doctor too. You can never be too careful.

I have just started experiencing a similar heat sensation in my right leg, just above the ankle. It comes and goes. Same thing...no external heat but hot from inside out. It lasts for a few seconds and comes in multiple occurences, like in waves. It is not painful, just strange.
