Thanks for coming to JustAnswer.

What is your question?

What work up have you had?

How long have you had this?

What medical problems do you have?

Burning sensations are often neuropathy, from nerve disease.

They can also be from:

liver or kidney problems.

heavy metal toxicity.

B vitamin deficiencies.


Hidden infection; hidden malignancy

Idiopathic neuropathy [cause unknown].

If you have not been to an internal medicine doctor, this needs to be done asap.

There are many possible causes, as you can see above.
