Burning in feet.

Hi everyone!

The past few days I've had a burning sensation in both feet.

I've had FND since 2012 but this burning sensation is new to me.

Anyone else have this sensation?

Best wishes to you all!

Hi, yes I get the same in ny hand and feet and lips. This is a new symptom to me to from about 3 year ago. Comes and goes though in flares. Does yours do the same? Come and go?

It's super uncomfortable isn't it! I had it all day Saturday then it just went Saturday evening! When I first started getting it I thought it was just swelling but it's got worse and feels like burning now. Can last days or just hours! If you find anything that relieves it let me know xx

Can ask what other symptoms do you have and what symptoms did you start with? Xx

Hi I've had this feeling on and off for 2 years. The burning is so bad at times I literally sit on a chair with my feet in a bucket of ice water. Its the only thing that brought me relief. I know this isn't form or long lasting relief but works at the time.

I did something similar at the weekend when I went to my parents and found relief putting my hands on their cold stone kitchen unit! I dont know if it's just me but I do find it can be brought on if I eat a lot of sugar or chocolate at night and sometimes alcohol, I then wake up with this burning. It's almost always starts when I wake up but have gone to bed feeling ok. Pleased to have found others with similar experiences :)

Hi Lou,

I collapsed in 2012 and my right leg went into Spasm which put me into a wheelchair for 4 months.

Seen the Neurologist who was very thorough with all his tests and was told I had FND which made me lose my job and most of my independence.

I had physio and had to wear leg braces which I still have and I get many symptoms from eye spasms, hand spasms etc and I just have to take one day at a time now.

I'm on Baclofen to help my muscle spasms but this FND leaves you drained due to it's unpredictability.

Try to find anything that relaxes you if you can and we tend to go to the Countryside often by bus as it gives us a sense of peace.

My best wishes to you.

Has baclofen helped the spasms? My newest symptom is twitching all over my body, literally everywhere. People don't seem to notice it unless it's a big one and it twists my head or arm but it's so uncomfortable.

Hi Lou,

I'm on 10mg, twice daily and yes, it does relax my leg spasm.

I've had the neck spasm and twisting, very uncomfortable.

Hi, I never had this until last month. I walked from down the road home I was in the phone because when I don't feel good I try and take my mind off it so rang someone. As I started to get close to home the top of my foot and shin started to feel hot like it was burning, my cousin laughed and said it's because you don't walk anywhere. As I got in and sat down I made my daughter feel my foot and leg wanting reassurance it wasn't in my head now I've experienced another new symptom, something new to deal with.
