I did mean Rheumatoid arthritis.  Thank you.  I currently see a neurologist/pain management doctor I have not told him of these new sysmtoms, I will.  I just got a brain MRI and will receive the results today.  I will however check out the other causes you mentioned.  The burning does not happen all the time and in just one foot.  I do not know my faminly history because I was adopted.  Thank you again.

Burning feet was the first sign of MS for me.  For years I used iced cold towels with a fan blowing against my feet to sleep.  Of course, I didn't visit a doctor.  In a few years it disappeared and became iced cold feet.  I wish you luck on your journey to find the answer.

Hi there. I think it’s a typing error and you meant rheumatoid arthritis.  Peripheral neuropathy is a complication associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Also rule out other causes of neuropathy like diabetes mellitus, hypothyroidism, vitamin B12 deficiency etc. Consult a neurologist for detailed clinical evaluation and management. Take proper foot care like never walk barefooted, keep them dry and covered and avoid any injuries. Take care.
