I guess I’ll be giving my doctor a call tomorrow, but I’m interested if anyone has any ideas about a very weird symptom I’ve been experiencing intermittently for the last day or so. There is a spot on the top of my left foot near my ankle where my skin periodically feels hot. The heat is not deep, just the surface of the skin. I haven’t noticed it feeling hot to the touch, but it feels like there’s a warmth radiating onto the skin. This happens randomly, lasts only a few seconds, always in the same place, with shoes and socks on or off.
I can’t even begin to figure out what’s going on. I haven’t been sick, not running a fever, no other part of my skin feels hot. I haven’t recently injured my foot or ankle, but it seems to be a nerve issue? Like the nerves at the surface of the skin are incorrectly sensing heat that’s not present.
I know you are all not my doctor and I will consult my own. But any ideas? Anyone ever experience anything like this? I’ve never heard of phantom heat sensing.
