In the last month I have burning feet sensation. Does not feel like pins and needles or lightening bolts. The sensation comes when I eat anything or drink anything even water, which is my main source of drinking. The sensation comes and goes and is not 24/7. Worse in left ft. And sometimes goes up my leg. My left foot is also swollen most of the time. My blood work up was good, I am only low in Frolic acid, which it am taking vitiam b complex for.

I have burning in my feet 99% of the time. My neurologist told me it's caused from my neuropathy. I have days where my feet feel like their 500 degrees and i'll put cool rags on my feet to try and help the burning. I also use ice cubes on my feet and those melt in like 5 to 10 seconds.

I do have an appointment with my podiatrist in a couple weeks.

I was going to suggest a visit. He will be able to tell you more about it than your primary care. I love my podiatrist, he's very helpful.

I love my podiatrist also. He is very helpful. I only wish my insurance covers it but it doesn't anymore. Still I will only see him, when it comes to my feet. I trust him.

I do not have exactly what you describe, but I do have a burning sensation in both of my feet going up to my knees. It is called Neuropathy. I have it 24/7/year round. You may be working on a case yourself. You may be able to stop it from progressing to my level if you work on tight control of your Blood Glucose (BG) levels. There are other reasons for having Neuopathy, which may be likely since you report edema (swelling in legs)

It would be wonderful if you'd make an appointment with your Dr (preferably an Endochrinologist) and discuss it with him/her.

God's best to you and yours

I have read your comments for fibro. Since I also have fibro, I wonder if that may be the cause of my feet problems. I will not rule out anything . I have had fibro for 40 yrs. Now. Been diaznozed 3 times with 3 different Rhrumisism dr's. Over the years. This is the first time that I might consider the idea. At this point I will not rule out anything. Please excuse my poor spelling , it is my weakened.

Hi James,
I only have my left ankle swelling. Will be seeing my podiatrist on the 16th. I thought it was this last week, but I was wrong. He is a visiting dr. That comes every other week for a day. very good dr. Also. Neither of my dr's mentioned edema. It basically swells on top of foot closer to the toes. Endocrinology dr's are a 3 to 4 hr drive one way from where I live. I might also have a pinched nerve in my lower back since I do have a lot of problems in that area. We do have visiting ortho's, but I will go see the one I prefer in Billings. That is also where the endocrinologist practices. I will call and see when I can get an appointment with the ortho first. This is so wired for me, since it is not 24/7.
I appreciate your input.
Rose
