Hello Bud, I'm a 30yr old woman and I have just started experiencing the same exact thing your talking about. I'm happy to know I'm not alone, but at the same time I'm curious to know what is causing this.

It's normal enough for women to get hot flashes because of hormone fluctuations, but I haven't heard of that in men, other than from diabetes.

I am not diabetic, im just the opposite, but I google stuff then just work myself into an absolute frenzy.

There is also something like peripieral artery disease I worry about....saw a TV commercial about it.

Mine was apparantly caused because I just started an exercise program. I walked on the treadmill for like 20 minutes for the first time in a few years and it was just from using muscles I had been too lazy to exercise, it seemed to work itself out in a few days. I have the bad habit of google then panic.

I would say at your age, you shouldn't take something like this lightly. Hopefully it IS nothing.
as our granddaughter, who is a nurse practitioner would say and so would our PC doctor, too many of us spend too much time on the net checking out what could be wrong. The net is way to general.. Paying attention to commercials is the worst!!!

I've had a similar problem in my right thigh for the past 3 years. It usually happens after I've been walking or standing for extended periods of time. A severe burning sensation, almost as if I've put a lighter that's still alight in my pocket. I've written it off to disc problems and I'm guessing that might have been the case - I've recently developed sciatica in almost the same area. Nerve pain can produce some pretty odd sensations.

I'm 43 and I just started to have the same sensation on the outside of my right calf. It does feel like warm water has been poured over my leg. Freaky feeling really.

I'd see a neurologist.

Oh wow.. I'm 29 going on 30. Just started to experience these hot flashes on my right calf. I haven't been vary active since getting out of the Army 2 Years ago, I was a grunt and stayed in vary good shape up untill I got out. ge. Just went to a Platoon reunion and me and the boys played. Boating and volleyball in a sand bar, among other things. So maybe I'm thinking a circulation proplem. But diabetes runs on my dads and moms family. And I believe I already have a glucose problem, not sure actually, I really don't wanna go to the VA. But I had a few episode of my lips getting numb, also I get very dissy, and loopy. . But the minute I ate something I felt better. This started for me in Afghanistan, coming back from a night patrol, I though maybe I was getting mission sickness from the night vision. But it was towards the end of my deployment, so thought maybe it's not that. This would happened towards the end of a 4 hour patrol on foot.
