Thoughts: You may well have a peripheral neuropathy, and it would behoove you to contact your primary doctor and commence an evaluation. This may involve a number of tests, and likely a neurologist will need to get involved. Believe excellent resources are available in your community.

Rare : Erythromelalgia is a rare condition that primarily affects the feet and, less commonly, the hands (extremities). It is characterized by intense, burning pain of affected extremities, severe redness (erythema), and increased skin temperature that may be episodic or almost continuous in nature. I included this for completeness. I never diagnose or treated
