The burning only affects my hands and feet. It starts when I am trying to go to sleep and it also wakes me up during the night. I either use a fan or cold, wet, rags to help ease it. There are times that nothing helps. Some nights I cant sleep at all. What do you call this and what can be done for it?
This may be peripheral neuropathy. It starts that way. Do you have diabetes, a serious disease or have had very high fevers or infections before this started?
Raynauds will make your skin go white and feel incredibly cold. Then will flush and feel really hot. You can't warm the feet and you can't cool them later. Look it up on the web and they have good pics for you.
Other conditions may be due to spinal problems or other nerve involvements. Let us know what your doctor thinks it is.
Go to a podiatrist and have an x-ray of your feet. You may have mortons neuroma. Debilitating pain especially at night. Makes it very difficult to sleep, especially if you also have planters fasciitis. I am getting steroid injections in both of my feet. I'm on shot number 4 of 7 and it has helped a lot. My Dr said normally the neuroma are a size 4 and mine were an 8. So painful. I hope this helps.
