Warm voete

In die somer maande sukkel ek met voete wat verskiklik warm is. Dit is net saans wanneer ek moet gaan slaap. Dit is so warm dat ek nie kan slaap nie, ek moet ''n fan op my voete laat blaas net om ''n bietjie verligting te kry. Ek was al by ''n dokter daaroor, maar hy se dis omdat ek hoe hak skoene dra en dit veroorsaak bloedvloei tekort na my voete. Ek glo nie dis die geval nie, want my pa het dieselfde probleem en hy dra nie hoe hak skoene nie. LOL. Is daar enige iets wat ek kan gebruik om my voete af te koel?? Help asb!

It sounds like if you are suffering from Burning feet syndrome, also known as Grierson-Gopalan syndrome. It can be caused by pressure that is put on peripheral nerves or it can be inherited. There is no real treatment for this condition other than addressing a possible cause.

I do however, suggest that you consult your doctor for blood tests, to excluded hypothyroidism, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. He should also test your Vitamin B levels and renal function.

Wear open and comfortable shoes with an arch support. Cold water is also soothing and Vitamin B supplements can also alleviate your symptoms.
