Did you experience this sort of thing with your last pregnancy. " burning electric foot syndrome" usually responds to vitamin replacement. Be careful not to get too much Vitamin B6 or too much Vitamin K, D, E and A.

Red: Were you exposed to cold? The response sounds like raynaud's. Dressing appropriately for any exposure to cold is key if it is raynauds. See your podiatrist for help and /or family doc.

Elevation: Elevate your feet, rest drink lots of water. That should help to reduce swelling. You should also contact your md if you are swelling and she is not aware. Sometimes swelling can be seen with high blood pressure during pregnancy.

Sounds viral: This sounds like a GI virus. Increase fluids and stick to bland meals for a few days. If symptoms persist more than a few more days, see doctor. Never hurts to check a home pregnancy test - pills aren't perfect at preventing pregnancy!

Possible neuropathy: Neuropathy can happen as a result of trauma, or nerve damage due to the consumption of alcohol or certain medications. Symptoms can range from a numbness and tingling sensation, possibly a burning sensation, to an uncomfortable painful sensation of the extremities. Get evaluated by a professional to determine the exact cause in order to get the appropriate treatment.

Dilated blood vessel: Sounds like your body is reacting to something that you're allergic or sensitive to. Perhaps you ate, or inhaled, or took a medication that caused an allergic reaction, which causes histamines to be released and the blood vessels in the skin dilate. This will cause itchy or hot skin.

What do I do if I have hot feet at night?

What do I do if I have hot feet at night?

If only at night: I would have a neurologist perform Emg/NCV studies to see if you have an issue such a pinched nerve in your back. I wonder if you are getting the problem when you lay down/a positional issue that causes pressure on the nerve vs the time of day.

Why when I drink cofee I get hot feet and thirsty?

Why when I drink cofee I get hot feet and thirsty?

Caffeine effect: The caffeine in coffee is a pretty potent diuretic. It can dehydrate you easily. So you feel thirsty from that. Caffeine also stimulates thirst directly in the brain. Hot feet reflects a blush. Caffeine can do this also. If you are adding sugar to your coffee, then this can cause thirst as well, particularly if your blood sugar spikes. If you have early diabetes, hot feet could reflect neuropathy

Have hot feet and hands. Have a temperature. What could be the cause?

Have hot feet and hands. Have a temperature. What could be the cause?

Many things: Can cause your symptoms! There are a number of things that can cause your temperature to go up (viruses/bacteria, even things like hyperthyroidism!) Sometimes our blood vessels will dilate as a way to lower our body temperature, especially in warm environments - this causes the feet and hands to feel hot. I would see your doctor if it doesn't improve!
