: I have had a burning outer calf in my left leg for some time. Now it seems to be spreading to my thigh. Does this sound like a nerve, neuropathy problem?
Did you recently have an injury to the calf or the leg? A symptom of buring could possibly be RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) Maybe you should see your family doctor. IF he/she does not take to much concern with it, I'd suggest seeing a neurologist. This doctor will run a few basic tests(initially not expensive) and will ask you some questions to see if it is possibility that you have RSD. If they think so, then they'll run some real serious tests to determine for sure.
Best wishes in your endeavor.
