Mitigating Pain Caused By Burning Foot Syndrome
Burning foot syndrome is something that is most frequently experienced by adults over 50 years of age and by diabetics. However, people who suffer from thyroid dysfunction or nerve problems or use alcohol heavily may be more likely to suffer from burning foot syndrome as well.
It is the sensation of burning in your feet and while it is not uncommon to experience burning and aching in the feet at the end of long day, a persistent feeling of burning feet is not normal and should be looked at by a podiatrist. It could be a sign of a more serious health problem.
If you are suffering from a burning feet sensation, there are some simple ways to help reduce the pain, such as:
- Wear cotton socks instead of socks made of synthetic fibers. Cotton socks are lighter and cooler.
- Avoid standing for long periods.
- Always wear shoes that fit properly and provide support.
- Take foot baths daily.
- Try using shock-absorbing or cushioned insoles in your shoes. It may make standing more comfortable.
- Orthotics can be helpful in some cases if an underlying mechanical imbalance is to blame for your burning feet.
As stated above, if you are suffering from persistent burning feet, you should see a podiatrist for an evaluation. Foot pain is never normal and should always be taken seriously.
