    For the past 2-3 days I have been having this random and sporadic warm sensation on my lower right leg around the calf area. Feels likedirect sunlight... or even like a warm drink is spilling on my leg. Kind of weird?

    Its been more and more common today like every 20 minutes or so.

    Anyone else ever have anything like this or any clue what it is?

    does it have anything to do with the injury you had a while back?

    I had a similar feeling of heat on the front of my left thigh, like I had spilled coffee on my lap, starting in 1981. To this day there's a palm-sized area there that is numb. You can stick pins in it and I feel nothing.

    Doctors tell me it has something to do with a certain nerve being pinched in my spine or somewhere. Apparently nothing can be done about it, so I just try to ignore it.

    My best guess is that yours also involves a pinched nerve of some sort. But see a doctor to be certain. You wanna make sure there's no tumorous growth (benign or otherwise) affecting a nerve.

    Vespa has a good idea --- pressure on a sensory nerve, probably at the point the nerve leaves the spinal column. I wouldn't start thinking about a tumor at this stage.

    But you may also be experiencing the prodrome [very first symptoms and signs] of either herpes or zoster [shingles]. If you get a blistery eruption, you have the answer. Simple herpes will be limited to a splotch. Zoster will form a linear streak.

    I was considering it could be from my hip injury... but this is just so random. I have been doing lots of bike riding training for tomorrow's 150 mile bike ride too. So was thinking maybe something to do with that? But I don't know. It is just so weird to me so figured I'd see if any other people had similar experiences then with them could try figuring out common causes or similarities.

    If it was me I would at least ask a real Dr.

    I'd been having back problems from the 1970s, due to motorcycle accidents and "wear & tear" from the Army. In 1981 I was taking my 6-month-long Officer Advanced Course (OAC) for Military Police, which involved sitting all day at long tables in the classroom, in straight-backed office chairs.

    Suddenly one day, without warning, I felt I'd spilled warm coffee on my left leg as I sat. But my cup was undisturbed on the table, and my uniform trousers were dry. I kept feeling the fabric for wetness, because that's what my leg felt, along with a strange tingling, half-numbness I'd never experienced before.

    For days this feeling kept returning whenever I was sitting in class, until finally I went to see an Army doctor. He couldn't figure out what it was, so he told me not to worry about it (typical response).

    The warm, wet sensation finally went away after about 6 months, leaving a general numbness that remains to this day. Over the years I've been given all kinds of fancy names and reasons why I have this, by numerous doctors (Army, VA & private), some saying it's due to my bad lower back, others that it has to do with my hip joint. Bottom line is I still don't know, so I just live with it, but not a big deal, actually.

    As I originally wrote here, and others have said, see a doctor. But you asked if any of us had experienced something similar, and I may have.

    If condition persists, I would guess it's a problem with your nerves, either local or further up in your spine. An MRI of thoracic or cervical spine would likely be necessary.

    Also, you should probably go to the doctor. It's probably nothing, but paresthesia (heat, pins-and-needles, numbness) in your extremities can indicate something serious.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the replies... yeah, if it persists I'll see my docotr. But seems like such a minor thing right now so that is why I just wanted to see if anyone else had similar experiences. There is no numbness or tingling... and it is gone within seconds of starting. So, we'll see.
    Thanks for the suggestions and replies though. Weird, huh?
