am presently a dialysis patient and recently during dialysis my right thigh has this extermely painful burning sensation. initially it was treated with depakote which actually helped, but the pain has returned. Is this a nerve issue or is there some sort of infection?

Hello,

Being a dialysis patients, you are at higher risk of infection. It is important for your surgeon to rule out infection.
