My feet burn and tingle, seems like the nerves in my feet are hype sensitive. Both my sisters suffer from this condition. What medications are available to help with this issue? My sister took one medication that promised weight gain. I will not take any medication that will make me gain weight. I am 53 years old, I work out about 5 times a week and am very active besides my work outs. I am presently not on any medications and wonder if there is a medication that can help me with the feet pain without any side effects?
Doctor: Dr. Johnny Ray Ellison, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago

First, I would advise some testing to prove that it is neuropathy, Your doctor can order a test called an EMG, which would confirm the diagnosis.

The two drugs used for perpheral neuropathy is Gabapentin, the second is Lyrica. Both are related meds and can help considerably on improving the symptoms, but both can occassionaly cause weight gain, swelling, and dizziness.

I hope this helps you, and best wishes!

I don't want to take a drug hat causes weight gain. Any other ideas?
Doctor: Dr. Johnny Ray Ellison, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago
Topical medications, such as Capsicin Cream, can help without the side effects of oral meds. Alternative therapies, such as acupuncture, may help.

Do I need a perscription for the Capsicin cream?

Doctor: Dr. Johnny Ray Ellison, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago

You can buy it under the brand name Zostrix, or Zostrix HP.

But note: it may take time (a week or so) to kick in. It may cause a little burning when you start to use it, as it is a cayanne pepper extract. Be sure to read and follow the directions on the label. It is also used for joint and muscle pain as well.

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.

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.
