What causes burning feet after laminectomy?
Brief Answer: Peripheral Neuropathy Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query Spinal stenosis does cause some amount of tingling and burning sensation of the legs but the most common symptoms are weakness of the limbs but partially gets better after laminectomy However burning of the feet is typical of peripheral neuropathy and it is unrelated to laminectomy. It is the usual complication of Type 2 diabetes mellitus. To diagnose this accurately I would like you to undergo Nerve conduction study after approaching a neurologist. For now these are my suggestions 1. Keep your sugars under good control 2. Wear diabetic shoes 3. Watch out for small wounds that might go unnoticed 4. Tab Pregabalin 75 mg at night will relieve you of the pain I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you good health Regards
