Cause Feet Feel Very Hot?
Assalamu alaikum wr. wb.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A burning sensation, like a prickling, which appears on the left leg like your father experienced may refer to peripheral nerve disorders, such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders (for example multiple sclerosis), injuries, infections (for example shingles, leprosy, hepatitis B) or tumors that suppress the nerves, spinal cord disorders (for example myeloma, amyloidosis), disorders of the thyroid gland, liver, kidney, or connective tissue. Not only that, complaints on your father's feet can also occur due to other triggers, for example alcoholism, plantar fasciitis, heavy metal poisoning, vitamin deficiencies (especially vitamins B1, B6, B12, vitamin E, and niacin), rheumatoid arthritis, clavus, gout , peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis, psychological disorders, or drug side effects.
If the complaint that is felt at your father's feet is very great intensity, to make him difficult daily activities, for example to walk, stand, and so on, you should check him directly to the doctor or neurologist. Through a thorough neurological examination, or assisted by investigations, such as laboratories, X-rays, CT scans, etc., appropriate treatment can often be given according to the underlying cause.
At home, the following handling steps can be taken by your father:
Compress the leg that has complaints with warm water, or apply warm oil
Do not massage carelessly experiencing complaints
Rest your feet first who experience complaints from excessive physical activity
Always wear pants and comfortable footwear, not too narrow
Eat also more foods that are rich in neurotropic vitamins (as mentioned above)
Stay away from cigarettes
Expand to exercise and maintain ideal body weight
Hope this helps ...
