Hi

Thanks for writing in.
Burning sensation all over the body may be due to peripheral neuropathy, renal failure, cholestatic liver disease. Peripheral neuropathy can result from such problems as traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins such as diabetes, alcoholism, vitamin B12 deficiency, hypothyroidism, certain drugs, SLE, HIV / AIDS and many other causes.

Hypothyroidism symptoms include sensitivity to cold and heat, depression, weight gain, exhaustion, poor memory, skin pallor, palpitations, constipation, lethargy, loss of hair, low pulse rate, male impotence, and brittle nails among several others.

Peripheral neuropathy pain typically is described as tingling or burning, while the loss of sensation often is in a glove and stocking distribution. You should get this evaluated by a consultant so that necessary tests can be done. These include vitaminB12 levels, complete blood count, blood sugar levels, and thyroid function tests.

Take care

My name is Tony,
This is in regard to your medical advice on "burning sensation all over my body" l feel you were talking about me. My PCP is tired of doing so many test and according to him they are all negative and refer me to Dr. Paul Dash at Johns Hopkins Hospital, dept. of
Nuerology. He did several test and all came back negative. l am fustrated with this problem. Could you let me know which city you are, so l can come over to consult with you. My started in 1980s on my feet and  now is all over my body. it feels like l am being roasted in a fire place. Then, this sharp piercing pain below my left rib cage. l am writing this e-mail because the burning sensation woke me up early as usual. l am 44yrs old.  Dr. Smita, l honestly do not know how long l am going to go on like this. My hair that has fallen out has refuse to grow back and the ignorant bunch l run into in Baltimore, MD here think l have a cautigous disease and they avoid me.
PLEASE HELP ME. l am dying slowly. my e-mail address is below. Let me know how l can reach you. l will travel anywhere to find a solution to this problem.

Shelia get tested asap for Lyme disease.  Your tick bite and symptoms are indicative of that.
