O.K. for over 15 years, I have the following symptoms;
This only happens when walking continuously for more than 10 minutes, same goes for running although it would happen faster,
a burning itch in my legs, both of them, with no rash that appears, just severe itch and burn either on the inside calves, behind knees, inside thighs and sometimes top of thighs.
This happens in cold or hot temps, with clothing covering legs or not, and I have this sensation of my heart rate shooting through my chest most likely due to the complete 'panic' of how acute the burning and itching is..and I have to stop and either find a place to sit or park my hiny right on the ground and force myself to just rub, not scratch the crap out of my legs. When this happens, it usually takes about a half hour to have the symptoms subside. I am active, it does NOT happen when playing hockey or rollerblading for 2 consecutive hours, SO weird!! I can not go for a walk or run as this will happen EVERY time. What the heck is this? Any ideas to research would be so welcome as my doctor repeatedly dismisses it as just an allergy, and tells me to just take a swig of Benedryl(yeah, I will just swig this crap everytime I want to take a walk!) :rolleyes: or grab a bottle of calomime lotion and slap on when this happens (again, like I am going to slap on evertime I need to run through an airport or go for a walk):rolleyes:
