: Hi,it can be due to blood flow or it may be due to an overactivation of the nerve receptors that deal with the sensation of heat. We have receptors that deal/send information solely (no pun intended) for one type of sensation. that's why feeling cold objects often feels burning. The key is whether they feel hot to the touch or just to your perception. Are they hot if you touch them or do they just feel hot?
That's key. then you can go from there. Medications could be a possibility, local vascular defect could also be a problem. Acupuncture refers to hot feet as "yin deficiency" or "yang excess in the lower jiao" that's not what you actually have, they just call it that. You may want to try an acupuncturist, but only go see someone who you research out as competant. there's alot of bad ones around. You may want
to chech with an osteopath who specializes in subtle manipulation like cranio-sacral therapy for treating a vascular or neurological defect.
