About the symptom

It describes the warm sensation felt on the limb.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Repeated fever above 38 ℃

  • Fever

  • Numbness / sensory disorder

Possible causes

  • Gout / pseudogout

    Gout and pseudogout are diseases caused by inflammation and crystal accumulation in the joints. Gout results from uric acid crystals, while pseudogout stems from calcium pyrophosphate crystals. Both are marked by sudden, painful swelling in one or more joints. Gout attacks can be triggered by eating purine-rich foods like seafood, alcohol, and red meat, while pseudogout may be due to joint injury, surgery, or immune issues.

  • Hyperuricemia

    Hyperuricemia is an increased uric acid level in the blood. Causes include alcohol intake and high consumption of meat and seafood. It's also associated with health conditions such as diabetes, heart, and kidney disease. It can lead to several diseases, including gout, a painful type of arthritis.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

    An inflammatory disease affecting multiple joints, particularly in the hands and feet. The cause is autoimmunity (body's immune system attacking itself).

  • Otitis media
  • Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA)
  • Fabry disease

Related serious diseases

  • Septic arthritis

    Septic arthritis is an infection of a joint space that can be caused by a wound that penetrates the joint, allowing bacteria to enter, or by bacteria from distant sites traveling via the bloodstream into the joint.

  • Osteomyelitis
  • Cellulitis / erysipelas
