Thanks for the query.
Yes, some women during perimenopausal period can have burning sensation in arms, soles etc.
This will subside soon, once the hormonal levels become study.
One more possibility is vitamin deficiency, that can also present with burning sensation in arms etc.
So once consult gynecologist, get examined.
If there are other signs of vitamin deficiency also, possibly taking the vitamin injections or tablets can give some relief.
If the cause is suspected as perimenopausal, go for hormonal profile once with your doctor's advice.
Then according to that you can go for hormone replacement therapy, which can decrease your symptoms.
Take care.
