Warm Feeling In Leg – Oh Bye!

Last week I mentioned in this post that I kept having a warm feeling in my leg. Since then many people have arrived here searching for things like – warm feeling lower leg – warm feeling down lower leg – warm leg feelings – what causes warm leg – warm feeling in leg – warm leg – warm calf – hot warm leg – warm shin – heated leg.

So I didn’t want to say anything too soon, but the same day I posted that post I went down to the chemist and got some of the B vitamins which were suggested in the thread I found when I searched for warm leg. I actually got a B complex which had b 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 12 and Folic Acid. I also found out that my local chemist has incredibly cheap vitamins, they were about half the price I was expecting. It says to take 2-3 per day with food, and I started out taking 3 per day because any extra is flushed right through according to my pharmacist, so I would only use what I needed.

I was already taking a daily vitamin anyway, but that one doesn’t seem to have an awful lot of B group in there. For example, B1 was 1.7mg, and taking 3 per day of the B complex = 45mg. Quite a big difference there.

I started taking them on the Tuesday, and by the Friday I was still getting a little bit of the warm feeling but it had changed quite a lot, it was a lot cooler than it had been before and it was much less often. However the warm feeling was replaced by an annoying muscle twitch in my face which also had me panicking a bit, because it lasted two full days. By Sunday the warm feeling was completely gone and as yet it has not returned. For the last few days I have cut back to taking 2 B group vitamins a day. I’ll keep up that amount of B vitamins until I have finished this bunch of 100 tablets and then see how I go, but unless I am under a large amount of stress I think it should be ok.

That was the big problem I feel – there was a situation going on here which had really caused me quite a bit of stress. It had been a while since I was under any kind of major stress at all, a good couple of years. So if you do have anything like that going on in your life, it may be worth taking some extra vitamins to get you through it – your body needs your help! ;)

  1. Stress can certainly play havoc with our bodies. I find if I forget to take my B-complex, I don’t cope with stress anywhere near as well. And I forget way too often. Glad to hear you’re feeling a bit better. :)

  2. I agree stress can play a major role – I am off to buy more vitamins too and maybe try getting to bed earlier.
    Glad you are feeling better and recognising what causes stress is also very important. I thought someone in your line of work ;) would be under a lot of stress all the time. The scammers are scary.

  3. My nana always told us to take vitamin B if we were stressed or unhappy. I need it and like Lightening if I forget to take it, I feel it.

  4. I’m so glad you are feeling better – having annoying little symptoms like that can stress you out even more. But I’m glad some of your stress is relieved – that is the best and healthiest thing. :)

  5. Great post and good advice!
    Glad to hear that odd sensation is gone, Snos :)
    Another thing everyone should be taking is iodine as every single man, woman and child in Oz has an iodine deficiency. This helps regulate the thyroid gland and can cause all sorts of probs when levels get too low!
    It’s found in seaweed, so heavy sushi eaters are pretty safe ;)

  6. Hey Snoskred,

    This is interesting and I was wondering if you minded me writing and linking to you about it on my new health and nutrition blog?
