burning feeling on bottom of both feet

Does anyone know what could be causing a burning feeling in the bottom of both my feet?It almost feels like I'm having hot flashes but on my feet.It started about a month ago.I did just finish Chemo infusins 1 shot every month for 6 months.The chemo was given to me to see if it would stop or at least slow down the tscarring build up on my lungs as i am sitting at 53%.Any help would be appreciated Thanks

My doctor does not know yet what to give me for my diffuse systemic Scleroderma. I'm at 30%. I had steroids for Lupus and did nothing for me. I also have hot flashes-like on my stomach and my privates. I'm over 60 and my hot flashes are long gone. While the heat is going on at night, I sleep naked from the waste down and with the ceiling fan running. It is totally crazy. I also sleep with my ski gloves on since I can't get my hands warm no matter what. I miss sleeping next to my husband but I look so ugly and feel that I'm such a bother, and no fun. He is the greatest.

Hi Grandma05,
I keep my feet heavily moisturize and wear socks. I'm shedding the bottoms of my feet like snake skin. I hate snakes. My ankles burn. My skin itches but I can't scratch. When I scratch, it feels like glass is moving under my skin. I use a scrungy soft bath sponge to scratch. I'm so afraid of getting open sores.

Thanks for the replies .My feet are not red like yours DaisyDo.They're more on the brownish purplish side and dry.I go to see my Scleroderma specialist in Van. next Mon. so hopefully he can tell me what is causing this.
Sleepless-AZ so is that your lungs that are at 30%? I too have a wonderful husband and a wonderful family who give me sooo much love and support.

I have burning feet too...... then when I get up in the morning it feels like needles when I put weight on them. My heart beats so hard in them at night sometimes it wakes me up.... My dr. said I have neurapathy and I also have raynauds in them.

I have that occasionally. I was told that the nerves are being exposed closer to the skin due to SD.

hi,
I have trouble in my feet also, but it is not constant, and I don't know if it is the SD or Raynauds, or arthritis. It is the worst in my 4th toe on my right foot. Then the burning can increase in the toes and ball of foot. It is so weird. I get the purple and red look appearance also. I have to watch where the seam in the socks touch my toe area.
It sure helps to share with someone who understands.
