I have the same problem, with the burning in the top of the leg, I have had it since gaining weight during pregnancy, my doctor told me it is the sciatic nerve, even though it is at the front of the leg. Very painful and annoying but I have been told that it will go after the birth of the baby.
I have had this burning feeling on the top part of my leg also and I haven't been had a baby in over 26 years. It started out on july 14th of this year as a burning and itching all over my legs and arms. Then about a week later it was on my belly, chest and arms. Nothing I did helped it go away. Now everyday since the 28th of july it comes and goes. Sometimes I have it for only a few seconds and other times it stays for up to 15 minutes. I don't know what it is but it does feel like someone is putting a flame near my leg and getting closer. If anyone knows what this could be please let me know.
I have had sciatica pain before--from buttocks down the outside of leg all the way to foot totally debilitating. With it I sometimes get a burning sensation also. And sometimes cold, I think the cold is when the blood begins to fill up the area that has been restricted by my condition--i just think the hot is inflamation. Maybe some advil or motrin might help you in that case.
I understand what you are talking about. You see I have the same thing and I know i'm not having a baby :d I had my tubes tied over 26 years ago. But anyway all this started around july 14the. I was waken up out of my sleep with my legs and arms burning and itching. It did feel like a match was over my skin and it itched like poison ivy. It last about 15 minutes and stopped. Then about a week later I woke up again only to have it on my chest, belly and back. Nothing I did helped it. Since then I have been having the burning on the top part of my thigh, right belly my belly. Sometimes it lasted up to 10 minutes and other times only a few seconds. But it burns like crazy, comes and goes day and night. I have an appointment with my family doctor this saturday. Hope she can tell me what's going on. If anyone here knows anything about this problem please let me know and i'll be sure to let my doctor know what i've found out. Thanks! :?
I would like to know if rosegrdn ever got a diagnosis to her problem. I am now having the same symptoms at first I thought I was getting shingles but I never got a rash. It started with the burning on my top thigh then it went to the bottom of my leg sometime it in on my waist. It itches and I have pain. My burning is more like when you get sunburn and it hurts to the touch just like it would if you got sunburn. It feels like the nerve endings are burning.
I have the same burning in the upper part of my leg. It feels like fire on my skin. I know I am not pregnant. I am male! It only comes on when I walk. If anyone might know what this is, could you please let me know. Thanks,
