The hot and warm pulse sensation is described by a lot of people as being like a tingling feeling which occurs in the leg. There are a number of different things that can cause this sensation and this includes a number of medical conditions and also some environmental factors. A burning sensation within your leg could be a sign of an underlying problem, which may require medical treatment. In some cases it may be possible to get rid of the pain without any form of medical assistance. 
One of the medical conditions that may be causing this problem is multiple sclerosis as this can cause a burning feeling within the legs. This disease occurs when the immune system of the body is attacking the protective clothing which is known as the myelin sheath and this interrupts the communication between the brain and the rest of the body. The symptoms that are commonly associated with this health condition include tingling and heat sensations throughout the body, numbness or weakness in at least one limb, dizziness, loss of coordination and also visual problems.  
Sunburn is another thing that can cause hot and warm pulse sensations within one or both of the legs. Sunburn tends to be characterised by reddened skin, which is caused by over exposure to the sun or ultraviolet light. The actual evidence of sunburn may not appear for several hours following the exposure to the sun or light. Sunburn happens when the level of exposure surpasses the ability for the melanin within the body to protect the skin. Melanin is the protective pigmentation that is in the skin. 
The best way to confirm what is actually the problem is to speak to your doctor. It is important to seek medical advice so that the problem can be treated, and this is especially the case if it is caused by an underlying problem.

Hot and burning sensation in the legs can be due to an inflammation. The inflammation is the normal response of immune system against an infection. You might be having some infections with swollen lymph nodes on the foot or you might be having an injury in the foot which is causing inflammation and warm sensations.

Hi I have been having trouble with this problem to.  My warm sensation is in my right leg on the lower outer part above the ankle.  It comes and goes.  I also had a feeling like I was getting a cramp in that leg but I just stood up and it went away.

It could be a pinched nerve in your back, or something pulled in your leg, but you really need to go and see your doctor to know for sure, hope this helps, good luck to you.

I have the same problem at the moment and I was trying to find the reason as well.  It started about a week again and it comes and goes during the course of the day
