I hope this question doesn't seem strange. Ever since I can remember (which is sketchy these days!) After a walk or exercise my muscles burn, itch, feel like electricity through them and the skin gets extremely red, raw and hot almost like a rash. I always figured it was the "burn" you get when you exercise but it seems to happen when it shouldn't. I take my dog for a walk almost every day for almost two years, force myself to even on bad days so I keep in somewhat good "shape" and she stays happy. I haven't changed the walking distance in months or a year, just to the post office and around a couple blocks but recently the burn has started even with shorter walks. What is muscle burn supposed to feel like??? I have been experiencing extreme, to the max, hip pain lately and hope it isn't connected, I have joint troubles all over. My favorite doctor who left her practice for research work years ago has returned to famliy practice but you need insurance so I am working on that. Until then I can't afford dr visits. Should I be worried?
