Toes are on fire!

Does anyone have a remedy for "burning toes?"  I have developed this burning sensation over the past few days, and it seems to be getting more intense.  I know my s1 nerve root is irritated/impenged.  I have never had this symptom before.

  • I have a friend with diabetes who suffers from peripheral neuropathy--mostly burning, but sometimes pins and needles in her feet which bothers her mostly at night after going to bed.  She told me her doctor mentioned to give Vick's Vaporub a try, and she was absolutely amazed at how much the burning sensations were diminished in her feet!  It's the simple things sometimes, isn't it?  She rubs it on, then puts those poofy "spa" socks on for overnight. 

    Make sure you check in with your doctor, of course, to make sure it's safe for you to use!!
