Dr. Singh :

Hi,

Dr. Singh :

The burning and numbness type of feeling is known as neuropathy. Causes of this can be due to pinched nerves, systemic causes such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, diabetes, thyroid disease, vitamin disorders, etc. I do recommend that you see your rheumatologist for this. Likely you may benefit from a medication such as Gabapentin or Lyrica to help with these symptoms.
