Customer Question
My feet and hands including...
My feet and hands including wrists are burning like painful blisters from the inside out. Sometimes this pain shoots up my arms and ankles (not my legs at this time). My doctor said take 2 Tylenol Arthritis strength every 4-8 hours. What do you think is the problem and how long can I keep taking this med?

Hello,

Do you have diabetes?

Do you take any other types of meds?

The burning sensation is from nerves that are irritated and can cause pain. It is called neuropathy. Sometimes nerve conduction tests are ran to see if they are damaged.

If tylenol arthritis is helping the situation than that is fine to take. You would not want to take more than 3 times a day and ideally not take every day. The tylenol could impact and harm your liver.

If you are having to take on a daily basis for more than 2 weeks then you need to see your provider again and talk to him about another type of medication that is more for long term use.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
