Imagine waking up one morning to the painful, scathing sensation of your feet being on fire. Of course they’re not, literally, but burning feet can make your feet feel as if they are.
If you are over the age of 50 or are diabetic, chances are you’ve experienced this condition, as burning feet are a common complaint. There are many causes to this painful, oftentimes frightening condition, including heavy alcohol use, neuropathy and tingling numbness. Other causes include thyroid dysfunction and gastric restriction due to obesity. Some infectious diseases, such as leishmaniasis, a rarely reported neurologic change secondary to a bacteria, also may cause burning feet.
