I have it too, all over my body like you. I have had the burning in my feet for at least 3 or 4 years now.
What pills are you taking for your Neuropahy?

I have taken Gabepentin/Neurontin, which didn't work, and am taking Nortriptylene (sp?) which doesn't seem to help either.

I am told that if one keeps his blood glucose under strict control for a long time, the condition may be reversed. But it takes years for nerves to be repaired. I am also taking Alpha Linolic Acid (ALA) which I have heard helps with neuropathy also. I have noted that my neuropathy paid has seemed a bit less lately.

Praying you find something which works for you.
