Does pheriferal neuropathy caused by Lyme disease go away by itself after healing lyme? My left foot is burning...I can't get no sleep because of it

In brief: See a neurologist

This is one situation in which i would urge a 2nd opinion with a neurologist if you have not already seen one.
If the neuropathy is related to lyme disease (and imo that is a large "if") the injury to the nerves heals very slowly. A neurologist would rule out other causes and offer you meds which are often very helpful in minimizing the symptoms.
