  • Hot legs

    ...and I don't even like Rod Stewart.

    The past few days, I've been sitting there, minding my own business, when I get a sensation that my legs (or sometimes just one) are very very warm. It's like the intense warmth you might feel if you get very hot hot sauce on your skin and don't clean it off properly.

    Happens only occasionally, not sure if it has to do with the way I sit (maybe cutting off circulation) or if it's a side effect in the same family as neuropathy or Raynaud's. Any ideas from you amateur clinicians out there?

    On another note, it must be fall, as I had my first full-blown Raynaud's attack in my fingers yesterday while walking from my car to my office. Ah, I love this time of year!

    I'm not sure about the Rod Stewart Syndrome ( hot legs) ,but I can relate to the anoyance of Raynaud's. I have the "pleasure" of it's company year round,including during 90 deg temps during the summer.

    My GP is trying some different calcium channel blockers (normally perscribed for high blood pressure) to curb my Raynaud's outbreaks.

    Best Wishes
