    A burning sensation is a sign of neuropathy. Other causes include medications, exposure to toxins, shingles, and injury.

      Your symptoms sound like neuropathy.  It could be that those tests only show a particular type of neuropathy but don’t show  other types.  Burning, numbness, pins and needles, and sharp or throbbing pain are signs of neuropathy.

      I was diagnosed with neuropathy after reporting burning, pins and needles, stabbing and throbbing pain and numbness in my arm.  It was caused by a blood test done by someone who didn’t know what she was doing.

    Hi Joe,  I too have had burning feet (symmetrical pain in both feet) ......for the last 3years.................the burning first presented suddenly......just 9-10 days following double knee replacement surgery.

    My symptoms come and go during the day, and are good at night. Also lying down &/or elevating feet help. 

    Neurologist diagnosed "post surgical inflammatory neuropathy", and said inflamation and pain should soon go away....................but whilst the burning has dissapated over time, I still have pain most days.

    I too am not diabetic, all my bloods come back as OK, and am otherwise in v good health.

    Anyone else out there with similar issues?

      Hi Bruce,  the thing is my neurologist on EMG.NCV report says,  no neuropathy at this time,  and he is accredited from a well know university health care system in this area.  He even told me in person that my nerves are strong.?

      he put me on mexiletine 150 mg twice a day.

      So I'm lost.

      I got neuropathy after a blood test and the damage is permanent.  Unfortunately medical procedures can leave things behind

    Hi I have had burning sensation and very cold feet at night for some years now. Due to the blood flow not getting to my feet when lying down. I find wearing thick bed socks at night a great help.

      I have neuropathy in both feet now. Not diabetic. Started with numb big toes.  Now ur is worse and have burning also. Neuro tests were normal. Was sent to Stanford Neuro, retested and normal. They did 3 punch biopsies that were sent to a lab in NY.  I was diagnosed with small fiber neuropathy, unknown cause.  You might want to get that checked with biopsies.  Nit a major procedure, just a bit uncomfortable and done in the office.
