Burning Feet

Hi,
I' ve got this burning sensation on the bottom of my feet, especially the " top"  part where my toes is.
It is really burning and I am in constant pain, can hardly walk somedays. If I get up in the morning, I need to stand on my feet before I can walk.
On top of that I get pins and needles as well, but the constant burning pain is really uncomfortable.
And to top this off I am not even that old and are active.
What can I use to make the burning stop- ointment, tablets!!!

Dear Anita

It may be that you are getting these pains as a result of the alignment of the forefoot. Change in alignment of the bones in the forefoot are very common and will present with the symptoms you describe. Consult a podiatrist for an assessment, they should be able to fix this with an insole.

I am diabetic and was told that it is one of the symptoms of diabetes. I use an vit. supplement for diabetes and when it burns, I use Ingram' s champor cream.
