Burning feet.

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi has anyone experienced this? About 2 weeks ago it started with burning feet on and off lasts good few hours. Really unbearable have to lay down to take the pain away. Just hoping it’s nothing too major, LS was only diagnosed few months ago.

    I haven't experienced that.  Do you have diabetes?  It sounds like my mother-in-law's description of the neuropathy she has due to diabetes.

      Hi Seginns, I’ve been diagnosed with LS in April and thyroid was border line. Don’t suffer from

      Diabetes, have been tested few months ago. Only thing I’ve got is high globin in bloods, this is my 5th Bloodtest just doesn’t go lower. My gp refuses to refer me a immunist, keeps saying have another blood test. 

      Does your ML suffer from LS as well ?

    Hi, I think you have another issue going on.  When you say burning feet are you saying that when you stand up you have pain in your feet?  cos I had that and I was diagnosed with Lupus..maybe see a rheumatologist.

      Hya hun, the burning sensation is all the time I’ve had it all day today. It helps to just lay flat but how can one carry on like this. I’ve checked lupus, never even heard of it before. I don’t have the symptoms. I will go see the gp within the next few days. Already depressed with all these conditions cropping up. Is your condition controlled now ?

      Hi, yep go see your doctor as that sounds awful.  Do you mean LS..if so yes that's under control.  The lupus is also finally in remission too.

    HI BLuePlum, 

     This sounds like a severe Vitamin B12 deficiency symptom to me. I used to get a tingling in my hands. I've been a longtime reader of nutritional health articles for years. but of course I'm not a doctor. I once had a landlady who told me that she couldn't function without a Vitamin B12 shot in her rear once every so often. (depression and tears I think).   Here's something I just found that might be helpful.

    B-12 Deficiency and Autoimmune Thyroiditis

             According to a 2006 study published in "The American Journal of the Medical Sciences," patients with autoimmune thyroiditis have a prevalence of B-12 deficiency, particularly of pernicious anemia. In the study, 28 percent of patients had low B-12 levels. Further, the prevalence of pernicious anemia in patients with low B-12 levels was 31 percent. These results suggest a strong connection between B-12 deficiency and autoimmune thyroiditis. 

    BluPlum - the tests  for "normal"are notoriously way too broad or narrow. Don't wait  - yet again - for your doctor to tell you your blood work is "normal".  If you feel like hell then something is off.   Read everything you can about vitamin B's etc...  OH... and check out my autoimmune protocol for nutrition that I have in my discussion list when you click on my name and scroll down on the right side.. be well. Blessings.

      You are welcome. and grin - it is that "ever so slightly" though that i am talking about - Whoever established the reference ranges - it really needs a massive overhaul... and it is usually WOMEN who suffer for these ranges being so off... i.e. you were never only slightly low in B12. or you wouldn't be laying flat on your bed now.  chagrin.

      But it's getting better... some years ago now, you may remember hearing that cardiologists for instance, finally groked that how women experience heart attacks or what it feels like for them is quite a bit different than how men experience those issues.

      BluePlum... Nancy here again... I just couldn't leave it.  I put vitamin B12 Fibromyalgia into Google and at least a whole page of articles on the association of the two deficiency of course, come up. 

      and get this... along with the B12, I saw from jsut the titles not opening any article, that magnesium and vitamin D deficiencies are also associated ...

      grin - and guess what? these are on my list of imperative autoimmune disease nutrition that is required.  well, duh, it's an autoimmune disease... but there is so much more. 

      Honey, get someone to go to the health food store and get you some liquid Vitamin B12 spray. to tide you over until you see the doc again... and then magnesium etc etc... my articles will give the whole list and amounts.

      oh you dearheart! smiles - I love some british terms ... toddle. by all means and I guess youknow that the b vitamins need to be taken with each other.. so you should get B12 but also get a b complex (meaning all of them and get it as high as you want with all that stress, Blueplum)  many years ago I discovered that being in grad school as so stressing that I needed to take B-Complex 100 (100 milligrams of everything or some ratio). HOpe all goes well... blessings and love
