    I'm a male in my early 30s, and I've also found that drinking plenty of water helps prevent my burning feet. Generally my feet burn after eating too much salt or drinking alcohol (which, for me, happens in the evening primarily). Only recently have I realized it's probably because I'm dehydrated to begin with, and those foods just put me over the line. Drinking more water throughout the day has been pretty successful at preventing it, even when I indulge. I haven't tried the Calcium Magnesium though.

    Hi Skuenettel: Can you please advise the ingredients (and concentrations) in the compounded pain cream?

    I have the same problem.. It started several years ago. During the hot summer months my feet would start to heat up, get HOT and I could not sleep until they cooled down. Now they are doing it all the time. My solution at the time was to go get a pair of cotton socks, soak them in cold water and put them on. I always, socks or not, hangs my feet out of the covers. I have always been that way and I I know why. My feet have really been hot my whole life. I used to ride my bike 5 miles a day, but always was getting exercise. Now I have a bad back and it can be a challenge to walk 1/2 mile. My calf muscles are very loose. I thought it might be my circulation. I got a pair of calf compression sleeves as I was also having pain in my feet. The compression sleeve is helping the pain and on the 2nd night, do not wear them to bed, my feet where hot, but seemed to cool down much quicker. I can't say they will help you, but I'm going to give it a week or two and see what happens when I see my Dr. at the end of next week.

    Another thing to try is Ice Water as cold as you can stand for 90 seconds. Hot water for 90 seconds. go back and forth as many times as you can always ending with the ice bath. That really did help right before bed, but OMG, do you know how hard it is to keep your feet in cold water, let alone for 90 seconds. I just can't do it anymore. I may end up changing my mind if my feet don't start to cool down.

    Just went to a podiatrist yesterday about the same problem,diagnosis called Nifedipine Vasospasm, as I understand the blood vessels are the problem and only thing he recommended was buying socks that help keep your feet temp regulated.SMARTWOOL SOCKS which I just ordered online but he swore by them because he said he also has suffered from the same problem,also were good shoes and buy insoles,I have found a cheap way that helps cool mine down is vicks vapor rub,my toenails were falling off and clear liquid shooting out,which if they throbbing that bad I have found that if you push on the toenail it comes out and instant relief! Hope this helps your poor feet!

    You sound as if you've got exactly the same problem that I have and I've tried sleeping with my feet hanging out of the covers and a fan cooling them down at night even putting my feet on water bottles filled with ice cold water in bed. These remedies work, eventually, but not convenient especially if your are sharing the bed or bedroom with someone who doesn't have the problem. The other day, I suddenly realised that keeping my whole body cool is the answer. I don't wear any more than is necessary to keep warm even during the day. I used to wear heavy fleece in bed but now I wear very little and use a low tog duvet. The other thing that works is drinking ice cold water especially with meals as I noticed that my feet usually get hot after a meal. These 2 things have worked for me, and I'm so relieved.
