For the past few days, at seemingly random times throughout the day, I've been experiencing a sudden sensation of warmth in my right knee and upper leg, on the front and around the outside of the leg. It's happened while walking, lying in bed, standing, or just sitting here at the computer. The heat only ever flares up in that one area, and it tends to last less than a minute. There's no apparent swelling and no pain or discomfort. It's just odd. I've never had any leg injuries or surgeries, and I'm not on any medication.
is this a 'percieved" sensation or a very real increase in the heat there?it makes a big difference.the thing is,if this is a percieved 'heat' it could be neurological,but if it actually IS an increase in the actual heat in or under the skin,it could be from some level of inflammation.but you stated you are not having any pain or problems of any kind?are you having any other wierd or strange sensations or numbness,tingling or pain or anything out of the ordinary anywhere else?FB

The only other out of the ordinary sensation that comes to mind is itching. My ears have been itching more often than usual throughout the winter, and for a few months I've had occasional episodes of widespread (arms, face, neck, torso) itching that seemed to accompany certain instances of anxiety. As far as the knee goes, I can't detect the heat using my hand.
