every morning I wake up and find my legs flushing red as if a sunburn is occuring. they have a feeling as if they are hot inside but not to the touch. I was diagnosed last year as diabetic 2. this ranges from above the ankle to the middle below the knees. What is happening. This started about 8 months ago.
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Since you have diabetes you should rule out the possibility of it being a clot in the deep vein or deep vein thrombosis or inflammation of a vein. Colored dopplar studies would be a way to diagnose these.
The other possibility is a peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes. Please discuss this with your diabetes specialist.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
