When I stretch my arms and legs I get a burning sensation in my muscles that last about 3-5 seconds?

May be normal: Hard to say, but with stretching and working out the muscles, sometimes the stretch is intense enough to create a burning sensation to to Lactic Acid buildup. If this happens quite often, with minor stretching, I might consider seeing a dr. Make sure you are well hydrated and take magnesium/potassium supplements, which may help. But first consult a dr. ...Read more

New or Old?: Your symptoms sound like a generalized nerve problem or peripheral neuropathy that may be caused by illness (such as diabetes or thyroid deficiency) but are usually slow to develop and only in the feet and hands. If your symptoms are sudden, accompanied by weakness, or changes in your ability to walk, get an examination for a neurological problem immediately. Toxic exposures must also be tested. ...Read more

Diagnosed with pots 7 months ago. I have developed severe burning pain in my arms and legs for two weeks...Skin biopsy and emg/ncv normal. What do I d?

Distal polyneuropath: Skin biopsy is useful for detection of peripheral neuropathy predominantly affecting small unmyelinated nerve fibers. A few biopsies obtained from the right location may be needed. Depending on the clinical presentation, nerve and possibly muscle biopsy is needed. Mri (cns/spine), labs including blood & CSF serologic studies, consultation with neurology, internal med/rheumatology may shed light. ...Read more

Having terrible muscle burning in my arms and legs like I am working out that type of burning pain. Cpk aldolose ncv emg normal...Any idea what it is?

EMG has limitations: It can still be nerve pain even with an emg/ncv, this test does not detect damage to the small nerve fibers that transmit pain. Fibromyalgia although less common in young men, can present with muscle pains in all 4 quadrants of the body, above & below waist, left & right side. ...Read more

Hi I have been getting a burning sensation in back of my head (brain) I also feel really run down and getting pins and needles in my arms and legs alot?

Hi I have been getting a burning sensation in back of my head (brain) I also feel really run down and getting pins and needles in my arms and legs alot?

Impossible: You cannot get a burning sensation in your brain. Your brain is insensitive to all pain and other sensations. It senses sensations only in OTHER parts of the body. When you feel those sensations, you feel them in those other parts of the body, not the brain. Have you considered seeing a doctor about this? You folks have got National Health over there, right? Wish we had something like that here. ...Read more

Medication complicat: The symptoms are from the atenolol and if they are from that med you probably have an intolerance to all beta blockers and medication metabolized by cytochrome p450 system in the liver.

Need to stop the meds and check to see if you have enough magnesium in you body you probably need magnesium supplements. ...Read more

Can low vitamin d cause muscle burning in my arms and legs? My levels are 26 normal are 30-100. Or high ammonia level 73 normal 11-32. Either of them

Can low vitamin d cause muscle burning in my arms and legs? My levels are 26 normal are 30-100. Or high ammonia level 73 normal 11-32. Either of them

Cause? Very Unlikely: Symptoms are only clues as to their complex origins & limiting thinking to only one or two molecules/issues, usual body mechanic approach (commonly promoted), is rarely wise or productive. If the ammonia concentration is elevated (by the 2%-98% range of the lab), this may infer liver problems (review http://emedicine. Medscape. Com/article/820298-overview); & careful: impulsive decisions rarely wise. ...Read more
