How do I get relief from the numbness and burning in my feet? It bothers me most when lay down.

Posted by heatman09

I have a lot of burning and numbness in my feet.  .  I have to wear socks at night because my feet are cold.  My Dr. says my circulation is fine.  As far as I know, I do not have diebetes.  I have had past problems with herniated and bulging discs in L4 and L5. I do not currently have any back pain.

What can I do to solve this problem.  I have difficulty falling asleep because of this.

If you have ruled out any type of physical disorders that might be causing the pain and numbness, I would suggest undertaking a mind-body approach to your problem.  Often times cold feet and hands are a result of stress -  reducing your stress levels and using focused meditation and relaxation techniques could really reduce your pain and help you sleep.  I also recommend the book the Mind-Body Prescription by Dr. John Sarno for a lot of great information about the mind-body connection.

Please let us know what you decided to do.
