Wow, that sounds awful. I don't have a lot of experience with pain. You need to tell your doctor and all that. Hot to the touch....that is weird. Hang in there and feel better soon. Let us know how you are doing. Take care. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
Love and prayers,
There are meds that can help with burning pain. I get something similar to this, except it is concentrated in my feet. It basically feels like I’m standing in a sizzling hot frying pan, and yes, my feet feel like they are radiating heat out too (don’t know that is actually happening, it is just how it feels). For me, this sensation started with a heat wave we had last summer, and while that may be a coincidence, heat is definitely a trigger for it now. At its worst, each day the burning did intensify as the day wore on, and by the evening the breeze from the ac and the touch of my bed sheets became excruciating.
My neuro put me on Neurontin, but there are several other meds that are also used for burning pain. While I personally can’t tolerate the Neurontin, I am really sensitive to meds, and my neuro said that it is usually quite well-tolerated. These days, I only get this sensation when my feet become hot (and I get cold burning pain/weirdness when they get cold…can’t win, lol). Anyway, while the location of your burning is different than mine and I’m not sure it is the same thing, if this continues, you might try asking your neuro and see if you can find a med for this.
