burning skin sensations

I experience this, mostly in the legs but these burning sensations can often move about my body, head, ears, you name it. Has anyone else experienced this? And do you feel it is an anxiety symptom? Thanks.

Re: burning skin sensations

I just was at the doctor for my blood pressure check and mentioned that for months I've been getting burning in the sides of my face and ears (sometimes they'll even get red) and she said that is a manifistation of anxiety. I guess it could be other things, but that it was she told me.

Re: burning skin sensations

I just took a trip by ambulance last Wednesday thinking I was having an allergic reaction to some medicine I was taking. I was burning sporadically all over my body. The ER doctor told me I was having severe anxiety and the burning was caused from my nerves sending electrical shocks. He prescribed me Neurontin for the burning. Hope this helps you.

Re: burning skin sensations

Hi Howard, I'm glad my post helped you. I know where your coming from with the walking and talking anxiety. I think I have drove my whole family nuts with it. LOL!!! My husband runs when I start in. It's kinda funny to watch him. He's thinking O great here it comes again. I think it helps me to talk about even if they don't want to listen.

Re: burning skin sensations

HI Howard~
I have had anxiety and PD for years with long breaks of no symptoms. But when it does arise it always manifests its way with a new set of symptoms. My most recent ones being after my husband of 34 had what they were sure was 2 MI's but now they are wondering if it might have been a viral infection. Anyway.....this time it is the burning skin and sometimes *****ling, in my arms, legs and sides of neck, sometimes face. I also have muscle pain or some sort of pain in my arms. I feel for you as I know it is very bothersome. I also know that if you can side track your mind (easier said than done I know) not to dwell on it the symptoms are not so prominent. I sometimes get a cold feeling on the top layer of my skin and yet feel sunburned. Oh the wonderful mind can do such strange strange things. Take Care..

Re: burning skin sensations

I too also have the burning sensation when my anxiety is really up there I have it on my arms and my shoulders. Its kind of like getting a indian burn when we were kids. or maybe getting rug burn, LOL I really hate it but at least it is a sign that I might be going to have a anxiety attack so I guess its a good thing for a warning. But I sure hate that feeling! Your not alone at least you know that you are not the only one going threw something like that. When it first happened I freaked the heck out but my Pdoc explained that anxiety can do that to you.


Hope this helps

Re: burning skin sensations

I get a burning sensation mostly in my stomach, legs and ears! I always think I am running a fever. Its kind of like taking a shot of tequila or something - it just heats you up. Good to hear I am not alone!

Re: burning skin sensations

I was wondering what the hell that burning feeling thing was. It seems
though some of you get it worse than others but for me its like my legs
feel like they are getting restless or something but there is some type of
burning sensation and it is kind of uncomfortable for me and my arms also
can get this way plus my stomach. I am not sure if it is my skin or muscles
but is it just mostly skin to you guys?

Re: burning skin sensations

It feels like skin and inner tissue for me. On my hands it feels like skin but in my stomach it feels like its an internal burn. Its hard to tell but it is a weird feeling.

Re: burning skin sensations

For myself it feels like it is just below the skin and on skin . Sort of like I have a bad sun burn and then put a sweater or jeans on over it and it is that sensation. Also get it behind my knees sometimes. So wierd.

Re: burning skin sensations

Hi everyone....I also get this feeling mostly in my legs...feels JUST like I've been burned and it hurts to have anything touch it. Not unbearably, but painful still. I asked my doctor about this and he sent me to get a Nerve Conduction Test and they found that I have early signs of 'Neuropathy'...wish I could explain this condition a little better, but I am just learning about it myself as I was only diagnosed about a week ago or so. I do know, however that it can become quite serious if not detected and treated early! So if this is something that has happened more than a couple times, ask your doc for one of these tests! Hope this helps! Lil'Pea

P.S. Also, there is a HUGE difference between getting "flushed(hot flashes)" and a burning of the skin. Make sure you are very clear with your doc's about this. Sometimes doc's are quick to attribute everything to anxiety if they know you are the anxious type....I am lucky that my doc took my complaint seriously and tested me. My past doc's weren't so good about it and maybe i could have been treated much sooner if they had been! Anxiety can cause ALOT of terrible symptoms, but it should not be the explanation for everything!

Re: burning skin sensations

Hi all,
I had the burning sensation just on my lower legs for about 6 months, but it has started to go everywhere. It is a very disturbing feeling. All i can describe it like is a very bad sun burn. My gp told me he would refer me to a neurologist but i am still waiting. I also get a sort of chill running through me from time to time. I first got the feeling when i went to the gym 6 months ago. It only lasted a couple of weeks but now i have had the feeling constant for a few months. Have anybody got any ideas as to what it can be??

Worried mum x

Hi!
I,m new to this site and I cab relate to the burning sensation.

It feels like your burning up with fever but the thermometer reads normal. It feels like my soft tissue/muscle are burning. After all, FM is an illness of the muscles.

Arnica oil is very helpfull but it is a little bit difficult to apply it on your entire body.

My GP, stunned by this burning sensations, then prescribed 10 injections of Engystol N 3 times a week. This REALLY worked!!! It is immunogluboline that builds up your immune system. So maybe the sensation and the low immune system is connected somehow?

A cold shower and maybe Voltaren(Diclophenac) can help.

Good luck to all the other fire-flies out there! (huh-huh)
