First, I will clarify I have been evaluated for PAD and it was negative. I find that I have days, not always, that my soles of my feet feel like they are on fire. It hurts to wear shoes, socks or use cover. I have used cool water to wet my feet and allow to evaporate. That seems to be about the only thing that helps and that is very temporary relief. Lotions or creams seems to aggravate the conditon. It just seems odd that this will occur for a few days and then disappear, but when it is present it is most uncomfortable. It really bothers me at night as I try to get comfortable for sleep. Dose anyone else have this problem? If so, will you share what may work for you?
Thanks Sunny for the reply. I also have FM but cannot tolerate AD's and I am not a candidate for Lyrica as I had a problem with Neurontin which has similar action. I do hope others will respond. I think most of my current problems may be FM related and not the Lupus acting up. Thanks again for your suggestion.
My toes burned and hurt. Went to the neuro who did an EMG. Diagnosed perpherial neuropathy. He increased my cymbalta and the burning went away. They still hurt and I have started buying larger shoes so my toes don't touch the end. It is worse at night.
I too get burning feet from time to time. My doctor thinks it is my neuropathy, as well. I cannot take certain meds, so I just try to keep my feet cool. So far, this has not been constant with me. The cold water hurts me, so I cannot soak my feet in the cool.....
I will tell you that when my right leg (the skin) burned like hell at night, so that it would wake me, my doctor suggested rubbing capsasin (sp?) on my leg. It sounded like the opposite of what would help. It DID help. I would suggest you try this for your feet to see if it helps. Maybe ask your doctor first, but I was shocked at the relief that I got.
