Burning Legs

Hi not sure if you can help I have constantly burning legs even if my feet are cold can anyone help ? xxx

I cannot help sadly, other than to say, you are not alone.

I frequently endure a ‘hot sock’. I theorise that it is associated with fatigue / tiredness.

Are you getting enough sleep?

Go to your GP ask for Carbamazepine tablets. They are excellent.

I’ve had them during 4 relapses for burning pain.

Get well soon.

Sadly no one can, only medication, you need to see your neuro or GP and explain and they can prescribe you meds that will calm this down.

I have literally felt as though my legs were on fire then freezing, its part of MS sadly. I always check if i have a UTI when mine gets worse as quite often it comes alongside a UTI or a cold. Really sorry for you hun, its not pleasant. xxx

magicool spray works for my burning feet.

from amazon or tesco.

Neuropathic pain apparently. I suffer badly with this, feels like someone has lit a fire under my feet & it burns constantly. I have tried every one of the usual meds, reacted badly to all. I’m now looking at spinal cord stimulation, which the pain consultant has put me forward for. It’s 1 of the joys of MS unfortunately, not all have it, but it’s a bugger for those that do.

I have the burning/cold stuff.

When I sit down, I put a blanket over my legs. It looks ridiculous in the summer. The window is open, I’m in a tee shirt and my legs are wrapped up like a winter parcel. If medication helps that’s great but I love my blanket.
