Recently I have been experiencing a radiating heat above my left knee and half way down the side of my leg. My leg is not hot to the touch but it feels as if it is internal or as if I have been sitting next to a fire. The heat comes and go’s but it’s mostly when my knee is bent or I am laying down in bed with my leg straight when it happens but it seems to be becoming more frequent lately. What could this be that I am experiencing?
Whats your gender? How old are you? Is there any swelling, pain, stiffness or rednees in the joint? Do you experience fatigue, loss of energy, lack of appetite or maybe low-grade fever? Have you had any injury in the leg or the spine?So far I think the cause is neurological.
