Burning feet syndrome

The sensation of painful, burning feet.


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.
