I have a hot burning sensation in my right leg? What cause it, could it be a vein trying to break

I have a hot burning sensation in my right leg? What cause it, could it be a vein trying to break

Several Options.: A burning sensation in the leg can be due to several factors but most commonly due to nerve irritation. Sometimes, an inflammation of the vein can cause a similar symptom but this is usually associated with pain along the course of the vein. This would not be due to a vein breaking or trying to break. You should see a vein specialist for an evaluation to determine the cause of the problem.

Burning sensation in my veins why?

Burning sensation in my veins why?

Varicose veins?: Some people describe a burning sensation from varicose veins. Other cause of burning sensations include neuropathy which may be in the area of the visible veins. I would recommend you see your doctor or a vein specialist to get it checked out.

Seeing prominient veins in hands and burning sensation. What could be wrong?

Loss of fat: Subcutaneous fat naturally atrophies over time. Think of the difference between the cheeks of a baby and a 90 year old man. These make veins which are normally occurring in the hand more visible. These can be removed, for cosmetic reasons, by a vein specialist or phlebologist.

Sympathetic surge: This sounds like a stress reaction that causes over activity of the sympathetic nervous system. This can cause surge in blood pressure, increased flow of blood into head and neck with distention of the bluish draining veins in the face and neck. This can cause stress on the heart and predispose to heart attack or stroke. He needs a thorough medical evaluation. He needs stress reduction.

Is it serious to have a vein in my left hand that is a burning sensation.

Is it serious to have a vein in my left hand that is a burning sensation.

Probably not serious: Veins anywhere in the body usually cause no symptoms unless they have a problem such as a clot, inflammation or trauma. There are also many nerves in your hand which can cause similar symptoms. If your vein was the source of the burning it should show some signs of irritation such as swelling, hardness, red color or inflammation. Try local care with heat and ibuprofen. If no better, see an md.

I have a burning sensation in the vein on back of my left hand. It is not swollen just feels painful at times not always.

I have a burning sensation in the vein on back of my left hand. It is not swollen just feels painful at times not always.

Phlebitis: The vein could be irritated, a condition called phlebitis, but this is not too common on the hand, especially if there has not been a needle in the vein (for example for IV fluids/meds or for IV drug use). If not red or swollen, if no fevers, and if normal sensation and movement, just try soaking it 20 minutes 2x/day.

What should I do if my right leg is swollen feels like its asleep and a burning sensation on the lower part I have vericious veins

What should I do if my right leg is swollen feels like its asleep and a burning sensation on the lower part I have vericious veins

See A Vascular MD: You should seek evaluation by a medical professional, preferrably a vein specialist or vascular surgeon. Since you have obvious varicose veins on your lower legs and have swelling as well as burning in the legs, it is likely that you have a medical condition known as venous insufficiency or venous reflux. It is treatable and often curable. A ultrasound of your leg veins will be needed.

Why does sometimes my right testis veins swells and pain after urination? It lasts for 30 minutes & back to normal. Burning sensation sometimes

Why does sometimes my right testis veins swells and pain after urination? It lasts for 30 minutes & back to normal. Burning sensation sometimes

See answer: Your symptoms are somewhat atypical. If you truly have enlarged veins within the scrotum, would be consistent with a varicocele. That said, they are much more common on the left side, are usually asymptomatic, and would have no connection to the act of urination. Non-bacterial prostatitis is common in young males and may be associated with testicular pain and burning sensation. See md if persists.

Burning sensation in feet& legs. Vein Dr. Says it's not veins. But I should see a Neurologist? Could nerves be causing all this burning?

Burning sensation in feet& legs. Vein Dr. Says it's not veins. But I should see a Neurologist? Could nerves be causing all this burning?

Burning and nerves: Yes, the sensation of burning is probably caused by problems with the nerves more than any other source, besides changes in the skin, which can be seen. If the area that feels like burning is the same on both sides, and the skin looks okay, it makes sense to consider if it is the nerves, or at least, something that is bothering the nerves.

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

I received 20mg of Depo medrol ultrasound injection. My question is if my nerve was injected to the median nerve and caused damage would it effect both sides and chest? I've had bulging veins burning pain on fire red when actively using my hands.

No: No, the median nerve supplies the thumb, index, and middle fingers; so even extreme damage to the median nerve would not directly affect the chest. But is possible you had more of a systemic reaction to the steroids you were given, although there are other potential causes as well. I would discuss the specifics of your case with your doctor.
