Post Burning sensation in arms, legs

About 5 days ago I began experiencing burning sensations in my lower legs. It has now spread to just above my knee, and my upper forearms and just above the elbow. I'm not sure what could be causing this. I went to the doctor today and he said he wasn't sure what the problem was, but gave me some Allegra to try and see if that cleared up the problem.

Does this possibly sound like early signs of MS? Or has anyone else had these symptoms and been able to figure out what they are? Any help is appreciated.

My dad has experienced this sensation with his MS, however I have not. Early signs vary by person. My suggestion, would be take the medication your doctor gave you and see if it works. If your still not satisified, pursue it with your doctor further until you get an answer and a solution to the problem. I would hazard a guess that the burning sensations could go hand in hand with some other problem also. Good Luck!
