Hot sensation one side of body

Hi,

My 82 year old father has a sensation of hotness down the left side of his body.  It begins from his neck/shoulder and ends at his feet.  It is a very hot burning sensation and presents with numbness in the affected leg (left leg).  It is always there.  None of the doctors have been able to treat it or find out what is causing it.  It effects him so badly sometimes that he even gets a pain around his waist and if he is walking, he has to sit down immediately.  Once his sits down for about twenty minutes the pain in his waist lessens and although the numbness and heat remains, he can walk again for a little before it happens again.

Do you know what this could be?

Thanks very much

Molly

hi molly, he might have 2 or 3 conditions simultaneously.
peripheral neuropathy may be a prime cause. Also he may have arthritis/osteoporosis, etc.
please visit an orthopaedician and find out the proper reason.

Of all the possible conditions peripheral neuropathy and arthritis/osteoporosis are about as unlikely as your father being abducted by aliens.

There are several clues.

The symptoms are only on one side of the body. Not both sides.

On ocasion Herpes presents in this manner. It is not a typical presentation, but the burning and hotness (only on one side of the body) are sometimes associated with this disease.

The other possibility is injury or disease on the right part of the brain.
