Sadly it is hard to say exactly why you are experiencing a feeling of heat from the knee down on your left leg as there could be a number of reasons for this symptom. It is therefore best and most sensible to book an appointment at the doctors. With any medical concern it can indeed be tempting to try and 'google' your symptoms rather than wanting to trouble a doctor. However this can be very detrimental and can cause a lot of worry and stress that really should be avoided.

You will find, if you google any symptoms or ailments, a whole host of scary diseases and causes that come up which can send you into panic. However nine times out of 10 it is actually nothing that serious at all. Therefore going to the doctor as soon as you feel something strange is the best policy. They will be able to examine your leg and talk through when you are getting the sensation and how long it has been happening for. They should then be able to diagnosis what the problem is and prescribe any medication if needed.

If you can't actually get down to the doctors for some reason then it is still worth phoning them up to talk through your symptoms. Once you know the answer to why you are experiencing the sensation then it may well be a great weight off your shoulders and you will have wished you had got it checked out straight away.

I have been feeling something similar. My left leg feels hot, right around my shin. It only lasts for a minute or two, and then it goes back to feeling normal. It's freaking me out because it's weird. I'm glad someone else is having this happen, it makes me feel less weird.

Could be a nerve, a blood clot, pulled muscle, or an infection(infection would most likely be hot to the outer touch too.

I have the same feeling. The heat comes right about my ankle on my left leg and stays for about a minute and then goes away. What could this be?

I read your answer and I guess I should go to the dr.
My upper leg down to almost my knee burns just like a sunburn and near where the upper leg attaches is sore feeling. Its been this way for about a month and then it seems a little better and then it starts again. Anybody have any other answers.

I went to see my doctor today for the same thing. I was afraid it could be a blood clot. I also have some tingling in my leg that comes and goes.

My doctor thinks it is from a pinched nerve even though I have no pain in my back.

I hav the same problem on my knee! I asked my coach ( shes a physical therapist assistant) and she said it cud mean inflammation due to a tron ligament or something but because I havnt experienced any pain thts not it. But she didnt seem to worried about it. After doin internet research ive found it might b bursitis or the pinched nerve thing ppl are talking about. I'm just going to try icing it and c how it goes
