My outer left leg has been going numb and a bit painful with burning sensation for the last two weeks.  My left foot feels like its burning hot, but when I touch it it is normal.  I also get pins and needles in my leg.  Can anybody tell my what it could be pls

    Hi,

    This does sound like a nerve disorder of some kind, a pins and needles sensation quite often points to a nerve matter and so does numbness. I would suggest you see a doctor ASAP whom may refer you to a Consultant Neurologist, they would do various tests.

    I suffer from pins and needles and cramps in my legs, but at the moment it is not known what is causing it, since I need to see a my Neurologist. I got an appointment booked but the wait is over a month away.

    Regards,

    Les.

    Depending on where the pain & burning sensation is this could easily be sciatica, which can be fixed by an appointment or two with a chiropractor or osteopath.  I have had this in the past with acute pain in buttocks and down the leg(s) and burning sensation/pins and needles in my feet.  If it IS this, it is caused by a trapped nerve.

      My toe tips go white too and I can't feel them at times sometimes I can't feel my finger ends. I haven't had this in a good while now fingers crossed I just put mine down to fibro but at the time it was very disconcerting because it was weird how it came on as fast as it disappeared. I have four different conditions so sometimes I have no idea which one it is at any one time .
