My pain doctor wants to implant a spinal cord stimulator too for my PN. Did you first have a temporary one before the actual implant?

Yes, I most certainly have burning with my feet and leg weakness. So awful.
Me too how long was it from first symptoms ? Mine was rather quick burning feet to leg pain weakness in 2 months .
I am 65 and was diagnosed with SFN in June 2018 by Mayo Rochester. Initially I had burning sensation with some pain at the bottom of my feet. I had to take early retirement from UNICEF. It may be funny for some members to know that while I remained uncomfortable walking, I was able to jog daily for a minimum of 8 kilometers despite progressive deterioration. I continued with jogging for 4 years without missing a single day. However my neuropathy gotten so bad over the last few months that I had to discontinue my daily jogging routine. The situation now is that I cannot even go from my bed to the bathroom. I have tried all kind of remedies including changes in diet with extended intermittent fasting but with no positive outcome. I have been experiencing severe numbness with a lot of other weired sensation. My feet feel squeezed and slippery with burning pain and numbness sensation as if there is a rubber strap/band attached to my feet with 4 strong men are pulling it in different directions and I am walking on a heap of hot wax mixed with red chillies. I am wondering whether members have experienced such sensation and what remedy have they applied to get some relief.

— Burning feet and legs:
I'm wondering if you have seen any of the complementary and alternative treatments on the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy's website here – https://www.foundationforpn.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Complementary-and-Alternative-Treatments-Revised-2020-final.-1.pdf
You mentioned having tried a lot of things, have you done any research into alternative treatments?
In reply to @johnbishop thank you John for your prompt feedback and continued support. Yes, I am member of Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy and have thus far tried acupuncture, red light therapy, Vitamin B12 shots, homeopathic and medicines plus supplements contained in Protocol 525.
If I may recommend someone on the east coast, the NY Hospital for Special Surgery's team of doctors that work with you is something else: https://www.hss.edu/neurology.asp They were the first one's for me that diagnosed CRPS.
Does anyone have suggestions for burning feet? My soles are very sensitive and are quite red by the end of the day. My first few steps when I awaken hurt. We are planning on a much-needed vacation that will involve a lot of walking. I don't want to disappoint my husband. I purchased two pairs of shoes, but they will not work. I tried wearing each around the house and dread telling my husband they won't work. I have purchased a number of different socks hoping that would help. Is there such a thing as a "cooling" insert? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you! @joybringer1
I have problems with my feet. I purchased scholls inserts from amazon and that have helped.
Hello. I thought I'd comment, although I don't have a suggestion for burning feet. Your post caught my attention, however, because of how much more I have come to consult with my podiatrist since being diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, or PN. I have had PN symptoms for a number of years, and, so far, those symptoms have involved largely my feet and, to a lesser degree, my legs (general weakness). But no burning. And no pain. In fact, the oddest thing was if it hadn't been for an EMG test last fall, I might still not realize that the nerves in my feet are no longer sending proper signals to my brain. The result: a wobbly gait (aka big-time balance problems). That's enough about my situation. Once again, I felt urged to comment to mention what a big help my podiatrist has become in my battle with PN – and to ask if you've got a podiatrist you like and trust. That might be the best route to relief from your burning feet.
