Suggest treatment for peeling skin and burning sensation in feet

I have had continuous burning of my feet for about six weeks. I had a total hip rWNL.eplacement six weeks before the burning started and the skin peeled off the bottom of my feet and then the burning started. I did have Type II DM, but my HgA1C has been within normal limits for approximately three years. I was diagnosed with Type II DM in Jan 2007. I took diabetes medication for a period of only six months since that time. I lost weight (35 lbs.) and my lab work was WNL. Help! I am constantly uncomfortable and want to feel better.

Neurologist 's  Response

My name is Dr. Aida and I am glad to attend you on Healthcaremagic!

Your symptoms are suggestive of peripheral neuropathy. I recommend consulting with a neurologist and performing a nerve conduction study. Pregabaline or gabapentine could help improve your situation.
You should discuss with your doctor on the above possible treatment options.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
