Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

To anyone with this symptom: Has anyone ever been able to tell you how it relates to low thyroid. I wasted so muuch time with the diagnosis of idiopathic neuroapthy and my neurologist did not even consider thyroid. Is it due to the poor circulation as a result of reduced thyroid hormones?

Inquiring minds would like to know.

Thanks, all!
Sunny

Re: Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

Knowing why certain symptoms happen with hypoT is a matter of great curiosity for me. I can surf for hours investigating the whys and wherefores, but I haven't found much about the nerve involvement. I have found something that says between 24 and 100 percent of patients complain of periperal neuropathy. (That's a wide margin, I know... For myself, I've had mild tingling and numbness, nothing approaching burning pain.
Wish I could help more.

Re: Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

that would indeed be interesting to find out. I get the tingling of hands, elbows, and feet (not always feet) just thought it prob was sitting funny, with arms on the desk here, or sleeping in strange postion. I also get (not often) is that tightening leg muscle, which doesnt seem to go away. know it is something about calcium or is it magnesium (which ever one it is, I said the other one to the doctor who raised her eyebrows and said _______ has nothing to do with thyroid, so I know I said the wrong one. OH WELL

Hot feet? yes, but again thought it was just hot feet...only this was not painfu and I do have not good strong feet..... Keep on looking and post back here, to let us know what you find out please.

Bonnie

Re: Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

That muscle cramping is from the way the muscle processes glycogen, which is part of what we call "metabolism". Metabolism isn't just the way we burn calories that leads to weight loss or gain. Metabolism is the way the entire body's cells use energy... including the muscles. I would assume the nerves are similarly affected.

I don't pretend to completely understand all of what I read on these sometimes very technical sites, but it's interesting to me when I can get a little of what they say.

I don't really get burning feet, but mine do get hot and turn red from time to time. Have no clue either as to why this happens.

I already posted this but I will post it again, burning feet can be a symptom of a Vitamin B deficiency. Taking a good B complex would be a good idea.

Re: Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

Hi Everyone,

I recently posed this question to a compoudning pharmacist and also a nurse practicioner and this is what I heard. "Burning feet are common with shifting hormone levels. It can also occur when estrogen levels are changing." Midwest, you may have an accurate understanding that it is somehow related to metabolism.
Any new thoughts are encouraged and welcome.

Thanks~ Take care,
Sunny

Re: Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

Thanks for letting us know what you found out. Pharmacists are some of my favorite professionals... They know so much that doctors don't.

It always galls me when doctors give a diagnosis of "idiopathic" something. Idiopathic is medicalese for "I don't know what's causing [fill in the blank]", but I'm too stupid, lazy, incompetent, or cheap to look further for the cause. Therefore I'll call it 'idiopathic' and make you think that I found the reason for it, when it's actually just a cop-out to get you out of my office."

Can you tell who are not some of my favorite professionals?

Re: Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

I quit smoking 2 months ago, and recently have developed burning on the tops of my feet. I contribute this to the fact that 1) my nerve endings, which get dulled from smoking, are coming alive again, and 2) because I have Hashi's and have quit smoking, my metabolism has slowed down considerably and I'm probably hypo again. I'm having new labs done Friday, so it'll be interested to see where my levels are now that I've quit smoking. I'm sure my Armour has to be adjusted again.

Re: Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

I have the burning feet as of late and blamed my job of standing on them all day. I even have been using the foot sprays for red,hot feet. It doesn't help so I guess I can mention this to my new dr(where ever they may be)

Re: Anyone ever recieve an explantion burning feet/hypothyroid?

If I wear my good running shoes my feet feel like they are swelling up with burning heat. When my body says time for bed m'dear, the metatarsail region (I think I mean the top of my foot) from toes to ankle feels hot, and only passing out with sleep seems to stop it..... guess it is from TD not from just being weird footed me.

Bonnie
Sorry I really have to go now....... cant keep them waiting! hahah or could I...? no I better be a good little bonbe so the doctor will not utter the word OOOOPS! (not that I will hear) haha
