    It could be a vitamin deficiency that you have. Apparently burning sensations can happen if you have a Vit B12 and Vit D deficiency. If you don't want to see your doctor, try taking a multi vit for a month or so to see if it stops. I think it would be best though to go to the doctor and get his professional advice.

    Thanks for the advice, I’ve been telling my doctor about my symptoms but he doesn’t seem to believe me. I’m gonna have to find another doctor.
    Thanks again

    Oh, that is such a pain in the posterior! I read over and over again how doctors don't listen to their patients. Yes, go and find another doctor and get a second opinion. If only to put your mind at rest.

    I know this thread is old but I wanted to comment...I have had burning sensations myself. It could be a vitamin deficiency or simply anxiety. For me, I believe it was anxiety because that is when it cropped up and once I was feeling better it went away. I hope you find your answer and the right doctor.

    Hi Joelle - I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind describing your burning sensations to me. My tingling sensations started in my upper feet & hands mainly and then I experienced burning calves & a burning upper back, chest & shoulders...it appears like the burning sensation travels a bit - I am menopausal so I have been experiencing my fair share of anxiety - but was also wondering if either anxiety of hormone imbalance was causing it - I have been to drs, ER, acupuncture, massage etc. nobody seems to know...I also experience a great deal of flushing - thank you!

    For me, it is a completely normal thing. I can just do this right now--- I can think about how my right thigh is burning, and now, as I'm typing this, it has started to burn. My left hand? I now have it. I think this can be a symptom caused by anxiety too, just another suggestion.

    Thank you for your reply - I just wish I knew what was actually causing it -

    How did you do Todd? Did you see another doctor or take the vitamin supplements? How are you now?
