Clinically called erythromelalgia, burning-feet syndrome causes feet to suddenly burn and redden with heat. In some cases, the burning is an intensely painful experience. For others, it is only bothersome. Walking on a cold floor relieves symptoms and feels good. With this condition the feet feel quite hot to the touch, and often appear swollen. Rest, cooling applications and raising the legs usually offer some relief. Burning feet are most common at night Nutrition
Burning feet are a symptom of thiamine (vitamin B1) deficiency in some cases. Thiamine is not stored by the body and must be provided daily through the diet. The best sources are whole grains, nutritional yeast, brown rice, peanuts, raw wheat germ, green and yellow vegetables and milk.
Poor circulation can be improved through a radical change in diet to a whole foods regimen of natural, fiber-rich, unrefined living foods including plenty of raw fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Raw foods supply enzymes, the immune-system boosters which help the body absorb vitamins and minerals.
