Re: burning soles of feet at night, restless during the day
I have been having burning feet for about 8 years now. I would have to put ice on them and when going to bed, the bottoms get really bad, I cannot cover them with blankets, have to leave them out of the covers, and in summer, my fan is on all night, so that helps, and the windows are open so I get a cool breeze and that helps, but it is enough to drive anyone nuts, trying to sleep is the worse time. I was finally after many, many doctors, diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The first neurologist put me on elavil, and believe me, it took all the pain and the burning of the feet completely away, but after a year it quit working, now I go to pain management, they have me on Lyrica and cymbalta, and flexeril. Lyrica is a nerve ending medication. It helps the fibromyalgia pretty good and does help the burning in the feet but not completely. I am thinking I have to live with this forever which is not a good thing.
Maybe you should see a neurologist, they can point you in the right direction..good luck and let us know how you are doing. And by the way, fibromyalgia does not care about age, so ask about that also. There is not a blood test for it, only eliminating everything else, and having numerous tender points.
