Burning feet

  • By Debbiepsych

    I have developed burning feet. I believe that I also have plantar fascitis. Does anyone have this? What can I do about it?

    Hi Debbie. I also get burning feet and what’s worse is the itching. I mentioned it to my Dr and she prescribed gabapentin for it. It works well for me,, but if I miss a dose, my feet start burning again within a few hrs. Now if I could only figure out what to do about the cold toes. No, it’s not a matter of just putting on a pair of socks.. If I’m not in motion, the toes tell my brain they’re cold. A body needs to sit down sometimes! Take care.

    Hi v5e0ct,

    I am sorry to hear about your burning and itching feet; I am glad to hear that your doctor was able to prescribe you something that seems to be working though! In addition to any tips the community may have, have you asked your doctor about any tips for cold toes? Thinking of you!

    Best,
