Burning sensation

Dear Doc,please give me your thoughts, my husband has been suffering with a burning sensation which started first in his hands and feet and has now progressed up the side of his arms and legs. He seems to suffer mostly when sitting down and in bed, not when moving around.
thank you

Dear IMR
This sounds like peripheral neuropathy that can be caused by diabetes, vitamin shortages and sometimes more serious nerve diseases - rather let him see a doctor/specialist if needed.
