Does anyone else ever get this strange sensation in their leg (or other limb!)

It only ever happens now and again - twice a year or something, although it's not been that long since the last time and I've got it again.

It is very specific to my right front thigh - it goes all goose bumpy but really severe, the lumps are much more pronounced than normal goosebumps. Also they raise up, stay a few seconds and disappear - the sensation is like normal goosebumps. And they only appear in very definite patches on my front thigh. Any ideas? When I get a 'bout', it will come and go for a couple of days then go away for months and months.

No. But I do get, about twice a year, a 'scalded' sensation down the skin of my thigh - its nerve related, like a pinched nerve or sciatica. Wouldn't be surprised if goose bumps were also a nerve induced thing!

yes, I definitely think it's a nerve thing, but wonder what causes it?
