Slow burn center of chest

Posted , 3 users are following.

I don't get full-on hot flashes. There is no profuse sweating or warm all over. It is more like a burning feeling under the skin. I mostly feel it in the center of my chest and upper arms. It can last for a long time. Does anyone else having burn/heat sensation in center of chest and arms?

    hi staci - Unfortunately, yes! I have been struggling with tingling, sunburn like skin, electric shock/zaps for over 3 years now. First i used to get the zaps/tingling hands & feet (still do a bit) but now i just get the intense burning in back, chest, forearms, front of legs and sometimes on my thighs. it was so bad last year that i went to the ER - nobody can tell me exactly what it is, but it obviously is nerve related & since plunging estrogen does affect every system in your body, i can only assume the nervous system is also affected. i am sure added anxiety thrown in the mix also doesnt help...my burning episode seem to all start in the very early morning hours so i know that rising cortisol must be involved somehow. if you look at past posts, you will find many woman who suffer from burning body parts so it must be hormone related. hope that helps

      Thank you, friend. It is such a strange feeling. And, of course, since it is in the center of your chest and upper arms....it feels scary. Our minds always assume the worst. sigh
