Burning feet are a common complaint among many groups of people, most commonly those over 50 years of age and in diabetics. There are many causes. Heavy alcohol use may lead to the condition. Neuropathy and loss of sensation often are contributors as well. Other causes include thyroid dysfunction and gastric restriction in obesity. Some infectious diseases, such as Leishmaniasis, a rarely reported neurologic change secondary to a bacteria, also may cause burning feet.
Treatments vary, depending on the cause of the burning foot syndrome. Diagnostic tests are ordered as needed to assure a proper diagnosis is made.
