Brief Answer:
Seems to be mild neuropathy

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
Occasional burning sensation usually indicates a mild neuropathy.
It has multiple causes like alcoholism, deficiency of vitamin B1 or vitamin B12 or age related.
Do you have any other ailments or taking any medicines as certain disorders and drugs can cause burning sensation.
If it is mild and occurs occasionally no need to worry.
You can take any multivitamin containing vitamin B12 and B1.

I felt the dx was somewhat generic, I feel the burning sensation from my thighs into my chest. I also have what feels like cellulite under all of my skin except my face and decollate. My skin is painful if I push very hard at all. I was curious if it is a type of Dysesthesia or possibly fibromyalgia. But I am not in chronic pain. I am not Diabetic.
