Question Burning itching feeling in legs, any ideas?

Hi everyone,

I've got POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) so I was told that blood often pools in my legs. Yesterday when I was walking the dog (like I do every morning) my legs started burning and itching, the pain was horrendous. I went home and laid on the floor and scratched my legs, however the itching seemed to be internal so wasnt relieved by scratching. I had to lie on the ground for ages before the pain went away. Then when I stood up again the burning started again. This was on and off all day. The next day my legs were really aching and felt quite bruised. After walking my legs would start to burn and feel prickly. This has never happened to me before so I'm not sure if it's POTS related or something else. Also recently I've been getting itchy palms and soles of my feet, but it seems to be an internal itch with no rash or nothing to see. It can be very frustrating. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? It's making it very difficult for me to walk.
