Since you have been running for some time without this issue, it is much more likely to be related to recent changes, like the cortisone, which does suppress the immune system. I would ask your doctor if there could be a connection.

bummer. Hopefully if you have Urticaria it was brought on from the cortisone shot and will not plague you forever!

Sorry Dee,

Sounds like some kind of allergic reaction to me too.

It certainly sounds like an allergic reaction of some sort.

I googled "red itching legs running" and got lots of hits -- you are not alone.

Could you have eaten something that disagreed with you? The cortisone shot will have hampered your immune system somewhat.

Hope you feel better soon.

Just back from an aborted run. I hadn't run in a week, nursing a sore knee and recovering from a cortisone shot.
No sooner did I head out (it's around 70, and misty) than my legs started burning and itching. Nothing else was bothering me so I continued. After a mile it had spread to my trunk, so I decided to head home. Two blocks later, I got dizzy and thought I would throw up. I could hardly stay upright and walk.
I walked about half a mile then felt much better so tried to run again. The burning and itching resumed immediately so I stopped and walked home.
My legs are red, and my torso still itches a bit but otherwise I feel OK.
Any idea what's happening to me?
