Gestational diabetes, burning in feet. Put ice pack on it for relief. Causes?

I ve been diagnosed with gestational diabetes even though I m in terriffic shape. At night after a few hours of being asleep I wake up with my feet on fire and I have to put an icepack on them to get them too cool off. How can I prevent my feet from doing that. Is it something I m eating or am I eating too late to where the digestion is messing with this?

dear awestbrook,
It seems as if neuropathy has set it.....
Get yourself checked for vit b12 deificency and get evaluated for neuropathy(biothesiometry.MFT....)
Its very unlikely that burning sensation in feet has anything to do with your eating habits....
