I have experienced burning in my feet and hands. I was very bad. I was told by a specialist it was neuropathy but I told my regular doctor that it seemed to come and go. I am diabetic and was also on lisinopril. He advised me to stop all medications and a potential side effect of the lisinopril was paresthesia. I have been off it for five days and the burning is almost totally gone. It seems to reduce daily. Along with weight loss (25=/- lbs) I am also off all diabeties medication. I am dieting and blood sugar is below normal to mormal 3.9 to 5.5
: HI DEBBIE

: I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT AND I HAVE RESTLESS LEGS AND HAVE NEUROPATHY IN MY FEET AND HAND. I HAVE DIABETES BUT THE DOCTOR CAN'T SEEM TO MAKE A CONNECTION. I HAVE BEEN WAUNDERING THE INTERNET TO SEE WHAT HELPS OTHERS. IT IS NOT FUN STAYING UP ALL NIGHT WITH JERKING LEGS. HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER. AND THE TINGLING AND BURNING IN MY FEET MAKE IT ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO STAND ON MY OWN TWO FEET SOMETIMES, BUT THEY DON'T HAVE A DISABILITY YOU CAN APPLY FOR, TO BE ABLE TO REDUCE YOUR WORK LOAD THAT REQURES STANDING ON YOUR FEET. HOPE YOU FEEL BETTER. WRITE BACK.. NADINE
