Burning feet could be caused from a number of causes like ill fitting shoes to diabetes. But burning feet is unlikely to occur in restless leg syndrome, where there is an odd sensation in the legs during sleep causing the individual to move, which relieves the sensation. This disorders can cause inadequate sleep leading to fatigue and daytime sleepiness. Diabetes causes peripheral neuropathy, damage to the leg nerves and burning feet. Alcoholism and vitamin deficiencies can also cause neuropathy. Sometimes allergy to the inner lining of shoes can cause burning. All these are suggestions and you will need to consult your primary care physician in person for proper evaluation. He may ask for a Nerve Conduction studies to evaluate the nerves.
