the only medical condition I have is acid reflux disease
Expert:  Salar replied 8 years ago.
there are two possibilities including varicose veins and peripheral neuropathy.. varicose veins causes incompetent valves and pooling of blood in legs.. doesnt cause burning though.. periphral neuropathy is more likely and causes damage of the nerve endings.. there are several causes for it including long standing diabeties, kidney disease, minerals deficiency etc. your doctor can do an exam and differentiate the two.
