Thank you for the extra information,. This is unlikely to be related to menopause. The main causes of burning pain in the leg would be a nerve compression problem relating to the lower back or a localized problem which may be infection or inflammation. The fact that there is no discoloration means this is less likely to be infection however it should be checked out in person to ensure there is no problem with the circulation in the leg. If you have long standing back problems then a lumbar spine MRI might be worthwhile.
I would be concerned if the inflammation was around a joint or was showing signs of a skin rash, as uveitis can sometimes occur with other systemic inflammatory problems. If you have not mentioned this leg problem to a doctor then I would suggest that you see your family doctor and discuss your full history so that he can rule out any relationship with your eye problem.
He may wish to do some blood tests to see if there is systemic inflammation.
