Q: Why do the soles of my feet burn?

Even if my feet are really cold when I go to bed, within minutes they feel as if they are on fire.  Why are they burning?

Hello, and welcome to Health Central, Baggie Bird. 


I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you, so I don't know why the soles of your feet burn. However, I can share my experience with this issue.  My feet used to do the same thing, but they burned in the day and at night. In my situation, it was fibromyalgia. Since the doctor prescribed medicine for me, I don't have that problem anymore.  You should probably let your doctor know about this symptom.  I know it is really uncomfortable.


Hope you get some relief soon,
