Almost all of those results are checking on liver and kidney function. While I am by no means an expert in those, they do look OK.

for the symptoms you describe there should have been tests for iron, ferritin, Vit B12 and folate levels, as well as a Full Blood Count (FBC).

I have read that B12 deficiency can lead to Grierson Gopalan Syndrome. Grierson Gopalan symptoms include burning sensations.

I'm surprised that she has not had the tests fbirder has mentioned.

Has she had thyroid tests? a test for Coeliac disease? diabetes test?

There's a lot of info on b12 deficiency in the pinned posts on this forum.

I am not a medic just a person who has struggled to get a diagnosis.

I have burning sensation in my legs too, but when I touch them they are cold. I also have B12 deficiency - Sleepybunny has given you good information.

Hi 03081963 I too have the symptoms of burning feet and legs normally in the run up to my next scheduled Vitamin B12 injection so it might be a good idea for your aunt to have her Serum B12 and Serum Folate levels checked.

B12 Deficiency can be age related and I'm 75
