Welcome to justanswer and thank you for the question.
Please tell me more about your symptoms,so that I can answer your question.

Do you suffer from any other medical condition like diabetes?
Is burning sensation accompanied by pain,numbness and tingling?

From the symptoms it seems like you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy.
Peripheral neuropathy often causes numbness and pain in your hands and feet. People typically describe the pain of peripheral neuropathy as tingling or burning, and loss of sensation .Peripheral neuropathy is caused by nerve damage. It can result from such problems as traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, medications and exposure to toxins.
In your case it very likely to be related to diabetes.
Even pinched nerve can be contributing to this.
I have notice recently that the tips o my fingers go num and get violent cramps in my legs once I have been asleep in bed and move my legs, can this condition be as as result of the damage caused to my spine which has left damge to my left leg and numourous num sensationless areas on my body?
Do you mean fingers or toes?
Just to make sure - so fingers of hand also show symptoms?Am I right?
Yes, 2 years ago I had carotid artery repaired, was 90.8% blocked by calcuim plague on edication Co-pretor 80/12.5mg, Aspovor 20mg, and cardio asperin100 all 1 per day
right side artery
Are there similar symptoms involving fingers of hand as well?
the finger tip is only numness and has only started recently the feet sesationhas been there for v2years
Then this fits in more into peripheral neuropathy.
so what do you recommend the way forward?
First of all diagnosis needs to confirmed.
I think you should consider seeing a doctor who on clinical examination can confirm the diagnosis. The doctor may want you to do tests like blood sugar levels, thyroid function tests, liver/kidney function tests. A nerve conduction study can also be of great help. Treatment is usually directed towards the likely cause.
