User :   i have an l3 compression fracture,X-ray was done, since then every time I move about my arms and legs get 'hot' it feels like i'm sweating but I'm not, is this common with a l3 com fracture ? and is there anything i can do to relieve it ? thank-you
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   May i know about the injury that caused the fractures ?
User :   hi, here,yes i'm 67 yrs old all i did was reach across my bed to pick up a container
Doctor :   Ok, did you have any open injury ?
User :   no, just a sharp pain,
Doctor :   ok, do you feel the hot sensation all the time or only on exertion ?
User :   it goes away when i lay out flat then when i get up or sometimes when i sit up it comes on,
Doctor :   ok, it could be due via the nerve endings ( a sympathetic process ) seen during active healing of any fracture or an injury
Doctor :   need not worry
Doctor :   its self limiting
Doctor :   Take Multivitamin supplements to get it off faster
