Are we having fun?
I totally agree and I too have numbness as well. The burning pain is awful. Sometimes I feel like I'm being burned alive. All I've found that works is to be naked. Sometimes cool water helps, like a tepid bath or shower but I have to be careful it's not too col dor I'll cramp up. Hydroxizine helps this somewhat as well but it makes me sleepy.
There are lots of us on here with numbness in hands and feet and it is listed at the ARA website as a symptom.
Hope you find something that makes you feel better.
