Burning of feet: It sounds like you have peripheral neuropathy and are taking medications like gabapentin. I am not sure that laser therapy is a definitive treatment for this condition. Perhaps you should followup with your primary care doctor to be sure that other conditions like diabetes are ruled out. Referral to a neurologist may be beneficial if you have not been to one. ...Read more
