Warm feeling in legs
Northend posted:
I have fibromyalgia and I can certainly identify with a lot of what everyone is saying. I have been having a warm feeling in my right leg for about 2 weeks now. It feels like warm water is running down my leg. It's not hot to the touch but, inside my leg is very warm. Not sure what this is and I'm curious to know if anyone else has experienced this.

Hi Northend,

I get the opposite.... cold water running down my legs. But I bet you're not alone in feeling warmth and look forward to others' responses.

I have had that happen a few times. The first one surprised me because I thought I had just peed on myself! I went to touch my leg and it was dry. I don't get this often but it catches me off guard every time.

This is interesting because I to have experienced this on my shin and foot. Thought they were soaked and yet when I touch them nothing..... So strange ! I am sure this has to do with the nerve issues in Fibro
Northend replied to ValarieW77's response:
I went to my doctor and she prescribed more vitamin B12. I also had blood tests done yesterday and I'm waiting for results. It's just weird to have that feeling run down my legs so often during the day. Thanks for all of the responses. Glad to know I'm not the only one. I guess we just have to hang in here and deal with this one day at a time.

I've had the feeling like warm water running down my shin to my ankle.

I also get hot/burning sensations in my legs and ankles. When I feel my leg, it is not hot to the touch. The feelings come and go. Sometimes a long time (days or weeks) between them - and sometimes just a matter of a few hours.

See if you sit or lay for extended periods of time while putting undue pressure where the thigh meets the pelvis.

I browse the internet in bed in a weird position. Stopped doing that, and the feeling has gone away.
