You are most likely having what is called as diabetic peripheral neuropathy
As you may also be knowing that diabetes
can affect virtually any organ of the body.
Nerves can also be affected and one of the most common symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy are numbness
and burning of the hands and feet.
The burning in the feet or legs is also known as "paraesthesias".
There are a few medications that are most commonly used to treat these "paraesthesias" which include:
I have written these medications in order of preference in which they should be used.
So I would suggest that you request your doctor to prescribe any one of the above mentioned medications to relieve your symptoms of burning.
There is nothing much that can be done for the numbness that you are having other than keeping your blood glucose
well in control to prevent further damage to the nerves.
