About 4 days ago I began experiencing a burning sensation in my legs. I have only experienced this sort of sensation one other time, and that was when I took a specific pain reliever. When I took that medicine, I would get tingling sensations (that would go away once I moved around), then a burning sensation for maybe a couple of hours, and all would be better. I stopped taking that drug, but like I said in the past few days the burning sensation has come back.
I really have no idea what it could be. I thought maybe it was diabetes, because I am at risk (340lbs 6'0"), but I have had no other symptoms like those you find in diabetic patients. Plus, the burning sensation is not in my feet, it's just like it's in my calves (not even upper leg). Also, it seems somewhat like the burning sensation is beginning to start in my upper forearms, just below the elbow (but not hands or upper arms).

Does anyone have any idea what this could be, or what I could do to treat it? I've tried increased activity, as well as taking a multivitamin, but it hasn't worked yet. Also, the only medication I am taking now is a supplement called quercetin (never gave me side effects like these before in about 4 weeks of using it), and like I said the multivitamin.

Please help, any advice on what you think I should do would be really appreciated.
[Hi..that burning sensation is a direct result you have have diabetes..and nerve damage is a cause...If you have a feeling of a glove or stocking on your legs..that is what it is..I experience the same you work..are you employed and is it uncortable is to me..but I may relieve when sugars get normal..let me know..thanks
yesterday i woke up with a really warm feeling in one of my legs i touched the skin it felt the same temp as the rest of my body but inside it felt like it was scolding, every time its touched by something hard like toilet seat or hard chair it feels like im touching burnt skin which it was just on my leg now its moved to my arm, i had a coil fitted last week and the doctor thinks they may have hit a nerve as i keep getting vibrating feeling in my backside and leg (opposite leg) just read a message on here about diabetes and about the leg problem to do with nerves just wondered if you have any advice, blood clots have been ruled out the doct dont seem o know whats wrong
