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

Hi, well me too!!! No one seems to be able to tell me much about the pain in the soles of my feet. I have been a walker/hiker all my life, no more. Do have peripheral neuropathy, but pregabalin stops all pain and tingling. It is the soles that scream after a few steps. My doc said it was gout, prescribed allipurinol (spelling) which did nothing except give me a nasty rash all around midrif…Stopped that, oh, you must have plantar fascitis, No, not that either, just want the pain in feet to stop, i AM now wearing only sandals, bare feet, with an arch insert, which is ok for a few steps, but after about 20 paces, wham!!! have to stop. Anybody who reads this any suggestions??? Thanks, much appreciated if any, Terry
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.
Thanks, will check out a good podiatrist here in Victoria..
Good luck in your search. Let us all know if you find something that works.
I purchased My Pillow.com slippers in a larger size due to swelling and pain. I ordered half size up from my normal size. I have bought more sneakers and slippers trying to get the right pair I can walk in. So this is what I’ve got for now until the pain (if it ever does) subsides.
I went on vacation with back spasms and foot pain (severe nerve damage). My guy ended up having to do all the lifting and packing up. I could not do it. Could not really walk. Was miserable. Please be realistic with your abilities. See a podiatrist before you go (as suggested by the gentleman). Know what you can feasibly do and what you cannot. Be prepared for anything. This will insure your vacation goes well.
Best of luck.
I had burning feet and big red toe and was told it was gout 20 years ago. Given Norotin – helped but bad side effects. Now take Pure Encapsulations alpha lipoic acid. After 2 weeks, the burning has stopped, the tingling and red greatly reduced plus no bad side effects except it's expensive. Brands make a difference. If don't use Pure Encapsulations, try Thorne.
Hi and thanks, I have been taking alpha lipoic acid but just a normal brand from a pharmacy. I know you're right, brands do make a diference, will check out your suggestion immediately, thanks so much, Much appreciated, Terry
I have numbness/tingling in ankles/feet all day. My favorite socks are by Allbirds and Bombas.
For me the most comfortable walking shoes are Allbirds Wool Runners and Tree Runners. For my street walking every morning I wear Asics.
I have problems with my feet. I purchased scholls inserts from amazon and that have helped.
@martyk, thank you for your suggestion. New inserts would be a good idea. Best wishes, @joybringer1
@ray666, Yes, it might be a good idea to ask my PCP if he knows a podiatrist. A referral is always good. Best wishes, @joybringer1
@roosterry, Hmmmm, when I was in PT for my knees and balance, my therapist commented about my high arches. I wonder if I should look for an arch insert. It is something else to consider. Maybe we will receive other useful thoughts about our burning feet. Best wishes, @joybringer1
