Now I know that you're not medically trained so I am not after a diagnosis, rather I am curious to know what people think..
During my first years with scleroderma I also had erythromelalgia which caused a burning sensation in my feet, legs and hands in addition to which the skin on these areas was bright red and you could literally feel the heat coming off of my legs. It was so hot that even in winter I could only have a thin blanket over the affected areas as the heat coming from my legs was enough to keep me warm!
Well now I have the burning (and prickling) without the redness and heat in my hands, feet and legs. However this only seems to be at night. I have neuropathic pain in my feet hands and arms so I wondered if it was more of the same but why is it only an issue at night? I sleep during the day as well you see.
