    I have severe burning in both feet. Can Sciatic nerve damage cause this?

    My Podiatrist & Chiropractor seem to think it is my sciatic nerve at the L5 location.  Does anyone have any experience with this?  Walking seems to alleviate it.

     

    I have had one accupuncture and back-cracking treatment.  Should I see a "mainstream" physician; and if so, what kind?

     

    Thanks.

    I too have issues like this...grrr, I 'feel' your pain.  I do not suggest 'back cracking' techniques of any kind.  I tried accupuncture and herbals many years ago, unfortunately these did not work for me.  However that certainly does not mean you should disregard them, give them a try, it may work for you.  I would also suggest seeing a 'mainstream' physician.  He can do some tests and see if there is anything else going on in your lower lumber area.  Maybe even a referral to a Rheumalogist where he can do a bone scan, not a bad idea I found out if your over the age of 35.

    Good luck to you

    I also have burning in both feet...sometimes severe...been going on for over 9 months..I have been to all sorts of Doctors..everyone thinks Neuropathy...I think I know my both beter and I think its from Sciatic nerve..when I bend over just right and stand its a terrible pain for a few mins and then eases....first time it happened I thought I was going to have to call rescue...the burning is mostly in the balls of my feet...

     

    Worse part is I am someone who has never had a health issue...thank God...and I am 64 yrs old....

     

    Anyone agree this could be from my sciatic nerve?.....

     

    HELP....

     

    Tks
