What causes a burning sensation in the viens in my fore arms? Also the muscles in my calfs keep locking up.

Assuming you are not doing that (and maybe especially if you are) then you should see a clinician to find the cause of this and the leg cramps. Probably need blood tests as well. Meanwhile, keep your arms above your heart level and try some heat on them as well as your leg muscles to see if it helps. ...Read more

Tight right calf muscle for @ 1 week. Worse with rest, seems tingling /burning/ itchy at night in bed. Not hot or discolored. Thoughts?

Calf discomfort: One possibility is congestion in the calf veins which builds up during the day's activity on your feet. Elevating the leg should relieve that discomfort, however. Irritability of calf nerves or muscles may be a cause. A blood clot in a calf vein usually is accompanied by swelling and tenderness. It's best to have a physician examine your leg and, if deemed advisable, get an ultrasound of the veins ...Read more

Cold burning sensation in lower left calf. Sensation is sporadic, but happens several times an hour. Occurred after prolonged sitting. Sciatica?

Cold burning sensation in lower left calf. Sensation is sporadic, but happens several times an hour. Occurred after prolonged sitting. Sciatica?

Cold burning: I think most of us can agree your calf sensation is related to nerve irritation. In this case, it was probably not severe. Since it occurred after sitting, it may be from the sciatic nerve, the popliteal nerve, or a lumbar nerve root. It is hard to know. Regardless, it should not last long, and may recover. Many people get this after sitting on something with an edge, like stadium seats. ...Read more
