Female, 90 years old. Presently, my feet are "on fire"! Sometimes there is severe pain in some area of the feet (toe, last night) No, but I see her today and need questions to ask....so I will ask here. It was done by a Radiaologist at the Diagnostic Imagining dept. of our hospital. That's all I know.

You may need to ask following;

1) How much is the block of arteries?

2) Will it require surgery, stenting or medicines?

3) Are the symptoms of burning in feet caused by peripheral neuropathy or PAD or both?

More the blockage of the arteries, more are the symptoms.

The symptoms if increase on walking are likely due to PAD.

There may be future complications like skin ulcers.

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.
