This is actually a common question, and it's a common problem. One of the main causes of this is actually eczema and dry skin. Many people suffer from this today and have to use many different creams and medications to ensure that their skin doesn't dry out, but it's much more common within the older population. If you're aware of any problems you have of this kind then perhaps you could narrow this burning sensation down to that.

If not, however, then there are potentially other problems too. People who suffer with arthritis in their knees, their hips and even their spines complain of burning sensations in their legs, even during the night. The pain can often be constant, however, meaning that you really must see a doctor if you are experiencing this kind of pain during the day. Even if you are able to narrow it down to something like arthritis or eczema, it's always good to find out what your doctor thinks. Your doctor will be able to check you over properly just to ensure that the problem is not going to cause any further problems. Furthermore, your doctor will be able to provide you with the medicine that you require to get better. They may even be able to provide you with particularly strong pain killers to help you with the issue.

Lastly, it could be associated medication. Many people who suffer from heart conditions and high blood pressure and have to take medication will suffer from this. This is an unpleasant side effect and once again, it's worth going speaking to the doctor as they will be able to provide you with the most valuable advice. Trust your doctor and don't delay going to see him or her. Your doctor will help you with this issue using expertise and medication.
