Ever hear of a doctor?

When I get really angry or annoyed to the point of anger, I feel a tremendous heat start to swirl around in the center of the palm of each hand and a weird "electricky" sensation courses outward to the tips of my fingers and up my arm, almost to my elbow. It has happened my whole life. It drives me nuts and usually makes me even angrier, which then makes the heat/electric sensation amplify. I do not have any illnesses that would cause this.

Glad you made this thread. Every now and again the top of my right hand will radiate immense heat to the point it's so uncomfortable i'll have to run cold water on it to make it stop. I'll hold it under the water for about a minute and as soon as I dry my hand it comes right back. I've had to repeat the process like 4 or 5 times before it stopped.
The strange thing is, it's only my right hand and only the top of it. When it comes on, my palm is normal temperature, but the top feels like when you stick your hand in an oven. I can hold my left hand over it about an inch away and feel the heat coming off it. I've had my girlfriend feel it when it comes on and she agrees it's definetly very strange.
This just started about 3yrs. ago, so if anyone has any ideas to what causes it, i'd appreciate it.
