Burning hands &feet: When there is a sudden change in sensation, it is a signal that something is happening to your nervous system. It should be investigated by a neurologist and a Foot Specialist who can differentiate these sensations from a mono neuropathy or a poly neuropathy. Do you have any systemic diseases such as Diabetes? Diabetes can also cause weird sensations.
