Washand wrote:My elderly mother (aged 87), who is otherwise in good shape for her age, has a burning sensation on the skin of both her legs below the knees which only happens when she goes to sleep. It wakes her up in the night and the skin of her legs looks quite pink and is warmer than might be expected to touch. However, the burning sensation can continue even after her legs have cooled down (to touch) by exposure to cold air. This keeps her awake for hours and so she gets very tired from losing sleep. Her doctors can't give a diagnosis and can't offer much help. I am not sure whether it is a circulatory or nerve problem, or both, but I would be very grateful for information if this is a known phenomenon. Thank you very much.
