Burning feet syndrome


Burning feet syndrome is the sensation of painful, burning feet. Persistent burning feet may be due to nerve damage from diabetes or alcohol use.


There may be a feeling of pins and needles, numbness, or both. The sensation may occur for a short time when feet are tired.


Treatment must address underlying conditions.
