Re: Why do feet burn
Its the small fiber nerves in your feet that are damaged for some reason, their job is to sense temperature & pain, when their damaged they can't send normal signals to the brain so instead send confused signals.
There a lot of meds out there that may help the severity, everyone will have their favorites that work for them, the one that helped my burning was Endep but that's just me, sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error to get the one that helps you the most, so instead of buying new meds then finding out they weren't for you, ask your doctor to try the sample packs they get given to them buy the drug companies before purchasing them, you can save yourself some money that way.
Sometimes Thiamine [ B1 ] taken in divided dosages during the day has helped some with the burning as well, but again it depends on the individual, also alpha liopic acid has helped some with diabetic neuropathy.
Do you know the reason for your feet trouble yet ?
