Burning Feet

Posted by pokeydot36 on 8/01/04 at 18:14 (156727)

The bottom of my feet burn as if someone is holding a torch about an inch away from them. Is there a remedy I might try?

There are many reasons for burning feet, neuropathy (degneration of the nerves) being one of them. I think it is important to see a specialist to find out why your feet are burning.

I am thinking of having a surgery for my burning feet. I would like to know, how is the procedure regarding the down time. Would I able to go home right after the surgery?.

I am very active person. How long should I wait to get back to my normal life?. How many doctor visit do I need to see a doctor, after post surgery?.

Olivia,
Do you have a diagnosis for the cause of your burning feet? If not I certainly wouldn't rush into surgery until you at least know what is causing your problem.

Without knowing your diagnosis or the type of surgery you are considering it's difficult for anyone to offer you advice.

My medical disclaimer:
I'm not a doctor and the above response is my personal opinion. Anyone experiencing symptoms such as those described 'burning feet' should be evaluated by a doctor.
