Help! I'm freaking out so badly please answer this!

Postby Coelacanth » Thu Jan 02, 2014 9:08 am

sometimes I get these 'hot needle' sensations on my skin & it feels hot can I catch fire from this, I'm so scared..I usually get it on my head and legs. I read in the news that its possible for your cells to heat up so rapidly your body may catch fire. I started getting this a few months ago and it started ever since I had an EMG.

You read in the news, that your body can catch up on fire? What news is it? I really wouldn't bother about burning. But if it's really unpleasant, visit your doctor and tell him what you get.

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Hello, I am no expert but I believe this to be not a physical issue but a spiritual one. My advice is to seek a spiritual healer or guide to assist you in your understanding of this happening. Good Luck and I hope this helps. P.S. No need to be afraid or worried :D

yes, news stories on spontaneous human combustion there was a man that went on tv and the news named frank baker who says he survived shc and there was also a baby who spontaneously combusted 4 times in india and had to be taken to hospital

Hi,
I wouldn't worry about SHC - there are no confirmed cases and everytime they found a reason, people had burnings because they came in contact with fire. Just because something is on the news, doesn't mean it actually exsists.

If you don't feel well, go to a doctor and if he doesn't take your symptoms serious go to another one. But don't try to diagnose your symptoms yourself; most of the time it just freaks you out unnecessarilyand that never helps anyone.
Even if they can't find a physical cause for it, they should try to help you. If it is with meds, treatment or psychological help, doesn't matter - as long as you feel better and (if it is possible) the cause for your symptoms are removed.

And lots of people saw there kids combust even though they just burned them themselves. And if you ask 5 witnesses of something you end up with 8 different versions. Without wanting to open Pandora's box: People see UFOs and ghosts and the Loch Ness monster and Bigfoot and unicorns and..., that doesn't make them real.
I don't believe things just because there are documentaries about them. In the end I don't have to explain why it wasn't this weird explanation someone claimed to be true, but they have to explain why it could happen. It has always been like this in science and it always will be (hopefully) - the one with the out-of-the-way thoughts better has some strong evidence (including probable explanations) for it.
Nevertheless, some thoughts on this topic. The human body is not easily inflammable - without a source of fire you need to heat it for a long time at really high temperatures (I found the details of 2 hours at 870°C, but without guarantee). In all cases, that where scientifically investigated, the combusted person was near a heat/fire source. And most of the time they were either incapitated because of drugs or alcohol, or not able to move because of one or another reasons.
I never heard of Frank Baker, maybe because I live in the wrong country. But Rahul lived in a place with high phosphorous levels, which tend to ignite very easily - but it has nothing to do with humans bursting into fire.

If you feel hot and/or have some irritating sensations it might have a zillion different causes. Even without the need of something no one was ever be able to describe scientifically. You wanted to know if it is likely that you burst into flames because you don't feel well. I gave you an answer plus some advise. So if you want to be panicked and believe that you have something really special, it's up to you but I would say it's not likely and just give you the same advise over and over again.

Frank Baker's case was on the news. if you look up his name articles show up.

I know theres complex chemical reactions occuring in the body each second so I was wondering if an overproduction of reactive chemicals could produce a lot of heat and cause a persons surface to catch fire, or a metabolic runaway event of some kind .

Yes, there are complex reactions but none that would result in something like this.
