Question: strange symptom question

 lorishobe - Sat May 07, 2005 9:37 pm

My leg (thigh) feels very hot inside periodically....what is that? It does not feel hot to the touch, but feels almost like an iron is laying on my thigh! Thanks.

User avatar It does sound out of the ordinary, do you have any other symptoms before, during, after, any numbness or weakness?

I have no other symptoms. I noticed last night, however, that it does feel somewhat hot to the touch as well.
