For the last two weeks I have been experiencing an uncomfortable burning feeling on the upper back of my legs and my buttocks. I first thought that it was just dry skin and I have used a moisturing lotion and just the last two days started using ucerine cream. The main issue is that I have to sit at a desk for the biggest part of the day and it is really uncomfortable. The chair that I sit in is like a weaved chair -never bothered me till these last couple of weeks so I am not sure if the chair is making it worse or not. It also bothers me wearing any pants. I have dress slacks that I wear to work and those bother me as do jeans. The only thing that I have done different that I recall is, we have been doing some snowmobile riding but not for the last couple of weeks. I have however recently just has lasik surgery on my eyes and with that I have started taking Omega 3 Fish Oil Blend - to help add wetness to my eyes. I would not thing that that would have anything to do with the buring sensation but I dont know. Appreciate any sugguestions you can provide.
It does not sound like contact dermatitis or allergies since you are just having burning of the skin without any redness.Other possibilities have to be ruled out. Are you a diabetic or do you take alcohol?Such symptoms are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition.
Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated. You can take some vit B12 for some days and see if the burning is gone or not.Also apply calamine lotion to the skin having burning sensation.
In case the symptoms persist then pls consult a neurologist as it can be due to some neurological disorder.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
