burning feet

burning feet

I have suffered with burning feet for years, and also restless legs. I’ve never had a diagnosis for my feet. They are worse at night, making it impossible to sleep at times. I haven’t found any relief, except for ice baths, which help for a while. Please help with this. What type of Dr. would I need to see, the GPs I’ve seen, seem to have never heard of it. Would love to get suggestions for relief.

    Hello and thank you for the question. I would suggest seeing either a podiatrist or a neurologist.

    If you have never had any nerve testing done – both large nerve and small nerve – it may be worth discussing with a specialist. If you have never tried any nerve protective medications or supplements it may be worth discussing this as well with the specialist.

    There are medications such as Lyrica and Gapapentin, as well as supplements including L-methyl folate, acetyl-L-carnitine and Metanx.

    I hope this helps!
