    Hi everyone. Just wondering if anyone has had this or knows what this is. For the past week I've had a burning feeling in my toes but it's only my left and not the foot just the toes sometimes it gets so bad I actually think my toes are on fire. I've recently had an ncs so I know my nerves are all good. :(

    Hi Sarah,
    I can't diagnose what this could be, but advise you to check it with your GP if it's still continuing or has been happening a while. I doubt it's anything serious, the human body can act strangely at times for no apparent reason :confused:

    A while back I had something similar that only happened in the evening and was so uncomfortable I was sitting with my foot in a bowl of water to try and calm it down . I did have various tests, all which came back negative , then it disappeared and hasn't happened again .:)

    It's a good idea to get it checked though, we do tend to hang many symptoms on the hook of diabetes when often it can be something else. Or nothing :)
