I've had burning to cold sensation my left leg for 3 weeks now. Sometimes it's just in the foot, other times across the whole leg. What could this be?

Sciatica: A problem with either blood vessels or nerve could cause your symptoms however, at your age this is most likely related to your back and the sciatic nerve.

If this continues, you should see an M.D. Avoid lifting, pushing, pulling anything heavy. ...Read more

Hi I have a cold feeling sensation in my right leg n foot and feel dizzy at times. What causes this?

I am experiencing a cold and wet sensation in my left calf. Have also been experiencing pain in back of knee. Foot bone issues as well. Why the cold?

Sensations vary: If there is swelling not related to infection, it can reduce blood supply to the area and blood keeps the temp up to normal - when it's less, the area gets cooler. Massage or rubbing gently can sometimes bring blood in to warm it up. See a Dr for physical therapy referral and Rx devices if possible. Problems of this sort can influence other systems and are worth treating! ...Read more
