"Hot feet"
 
   I know this might sounds nuts, but I am sure you are all used to crazy things coming from my head...

I have been kept up at night by feet that seem to get hot during the night to the point where I stick them out of the covers. The rest of me can be freezing, but my damn feet are hot. Many times the cover thing doesn't help and I just toss around.

This is getting really irritating. Internet research has revealed little outside the scope of diabetes, which I don't think I have. I might trying going to the doc at the school health center, but they haven't been very helpful in other matters...

Just looking for some support...insomniac me...

   I have the same problem! I use the ice pack bags called "blue ice" , usually found near the lunch box or ice box section in the supermarket, and wrap plastic bags around them. While sitting I keep my feet propped on them. My feet are cooled instantly.

   Just hot. Too hot to be under the covers and actually sleep, but not like burning like a fever in my feet. Hot when the rest of me is fine or even cold.

It is just miserable. I wake up every night and stick them out of the covers. Sometimes I can't get back to sleep.

I am starting to think I am a loon.

Do they feel hot when you touch them with your hand?

I can't even think of a medical term for hot feet. Pyropedia???

FWIW, sleeping with the feet sticking out from under the covers is a keynote symptom for homeopathic sulfur.

Move to New England, and you will be very popular in bed.

   what works for me? "warming socks", which is wearing two pairs of socks to bed--with the inside pair wet, not dripping, but wet. i prefer cold tap water. it's a bit of a shock for a moment, but i sleep much better with hot feet and these socks on. the dry socks over the wet socks keeps your bed from getting wet (and uncomfortable) i even find i can sleep through the night WITH both pairs of socks on!

Could be neuropathy...mine started off with burning feet -- I used to keep a glass in the freezer to put my feet on (referred to as "the paw glass"). Are you taking any new medications -- I think 75% of PN is caused by prescription meds.

Good luck,

J

P.S. When I got it I did a search on "hot feet" and all I found were fetish sites , then I tried burning feet and found other info -- the thing about PN is I don't think the feet feel hot to touch but I don't remember.

   Okay, I know this post is old and I haven't posted here in forever, but I was lurking around seeing what's going on and saw this and HAD to respond. I've had this problem my whole life since I was a little kid. I don't have diabetes as far as any doctor has told me but I do have hot feet. I always keep them out of the covers, even in winter I have to have a little vent. Sometimes I get up and soak them in cold water to be able to sleep. I feel your pain Cat.

I've never met anyone who has the same problem! I haven't done too much research because it's a minor problem. I'm curious, what's neuropathy?

   >my husband gets this hot feet and it is always after he has drunk whiskey even one glass and a few hours later he cant sleep with hot feet but he also gets restless legs at the same time .
I believe that it may be connected to an allergy and that an allergy test may help but i cant convince my husband of that yet i am sure as i have allergies and get restless legs that makes it interfere with thenervous system.

   You guys are too funny.

Okay, so thanks to Windy and others, I did a little research and came up with symptoms of vitamin B deficency. I started taking my multiple really regularly and it seems to help. Not perfect, but I can feel it if I miss a day. I am thinking about taking extra B and see where that gets me.

Good for stress to..

   I have had hot feet at night since I can remember, which is at least 30 years. When I asked a foot Dr. He said "oh that...well that is serious" and didn't say anything else...because he was dealing with my ingrown tonail...yuck. Anyway, I would love to know why my feet simply burn at night, yet are cool to the touch. It truly is aweful!

   Wow - I'm up right now on the web for exactly this reason. For the past 3 mos. or so, my feet have gotten uncontrollably hot at ngiht - and it's not always just my feet - sometimes it ectends to my arms, and all over. I cannot sleep - I wake up freezing due to trying to get relief from the covers being off, then cover myself, then end up sweating like crazy - it makes no sense, and my temp. is all over the place. I ahve always been a "cold person" - i.e., I never seem to find the room temp. warm enough - but suddenly, I have this overheating issue - and it always hits my feet the worst!

Do keep me posted on anything you might find out - I have had it with this!!!

   I am going through menopause and have been waiting for hot flashes .

So far the only things that get hot are my feet. So while my friends are sticking their heads in freezers, I take my shoes off or wear sandals and feel great. At night, try just sticking one foot out of the covers...it's a great way to control temperature.

regards

Try drinking less coffee or caffeine or watch how it affects your feet.

I have been reading all these statements on hot feet besides me having to stand on the tiled bathroom floor 50 times a night I have been thinking...... we are on our feet all day and night when we have showers we are actually massaging our bodies while doing that and it's not a major massage but we don't really take a lot of care of our feet. After my shower every night and during my down time before I go to bed I am going to take 5 minutes per foot and give them a well deserved massage with some complete care cream of some kind and see if that works I seems to make sense to me. Will let you know how that turns out but also Avon has a product called Foot Works. Its a citrus cooling foot spray that can be sprayed on the feet or in shoes too. I have been using this directly on my feet all week and it actually gives me some relief but the massage thing sounds good. Also I have noticed something too. I have been drinking a product I get from my chemist in Australia its called Berocca or a vitamin B & C effervescent. If I dont drink it every night or 2nd night my feet get hot. Maybe it is just a vitamin B deficiency ?

   Oh my GOD, I have been having this same phenomenon since as far back as I can remember! I used to go into the laundry/mud room where we had a sealed concrete floor because it was the coolest place for feet in the whole house! I have no idea what causes it, but I am up with this very problem tonight. It drives me nuts!! It only seems to happen at night, however. I've tried ice, been tested for everything, even cholesterol! Nothing is abnormal, other than these hot freakin' feet!!!! If someone comes up with a good idea, let me know!! I'm awake over here!!

   I'm 48 and have had the same symptoms as far back as I can remember. What we have is called "Burning feet syndrome" or "Grierson-Gopalan syndrome".

fficial" target="_blank">http://www.google.com/search?q=%22Burning+feet+syndrome%22&sourceid=mozilla-search&start=0&start=0&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-USfficial


Some things I do is to soak my feet in "Footherapy" foot bath and use a "Foot Rasp" to keep the skin on my feet as thin as possible.



You'll be surprised how helpful it is when cool air can penetrate the thick skin we have on our feet.

   I am 25 years old and have burning feet syndrome for about 14 years or so. I think that was when it started. At first I was only having the attacks when I did strenous activities. As the years progressed I started to get the attacks all the time. I sometimes in my sleep to were it will wake me up ten times a night. I have only found that soaking them in ice water will stop the pain completly. I get the pain about every hour or so if I soak them regularly. It isn't very easy to soak them all the time though. The pain is similair to the pain of sticking your hand in a pot of boiling water. I notice some said they have their attacks at night, do yall also get them in the day. My attacks when I can't relieve the pain will make me feel weak and almost sick. The feet look some what redder than normal but aren't hot to the touch. I have seen; podiatrist, general family MD, neurologist, chiropractors, and a shrink. Nothing even remotly helps. I have used support stockings that were made by Jobst that were compression stockings that delayed the attacks. My father had the same condition, his sister, her daughter and our cousin. I have tried everything I can find and I'm willing to try anything else, so does this product actually help?

   I've also had hot feet my whole life and today I decided to search the web. I get it after being active during the day, my feet turn very red, they are hot to the touch, and sometimes they swell. At night they don't swell, but I can't sleep, so I get up and run them under cold water in the bathtub. I like the alergy and vitamin B options. Has anyone else tried these since those posted suggested it?

27. "Hot feet cure?/pumice stone maintenance success story"
In response to message #12
 
   I'm 30 healthy with hot feet issues...been hot feet free for a couple of months now and like another user on here I do maintenance on my feet. Here is the process...Towards the end of my shower after my feet are the moistest possible I take a pumice stone and take all that dead skin tissue off the bottom of my feet. You know when you got it all by scratching your foot with your fingernails and not ending up with any dead skins tissue under them. Then after I'm done I let them dry a couple of minutes and rub in dry skin lotion that you get in those big bottles at any store. After a couple of weeks of doing this on a regular basis I stopped having this issue at night.
Conclusion.... It worked for me and I see another user....Please try it over a couple of months and if it works for you or doesn't make sure you post it back on the internet to help others. Even if it does not work for you for your hot feet this maintenance is needed. Imagine if the palms of your hands had a layer of dead dry skin on them..they would get hot...in theory anyways.

57. "HELP ME!!"
In response to message #27
 
   Hi, Im 21 years old, and for the past few months I have noticed that my feet get extremely hot at night. Ive tried soaking them in cold water before going to bed, soaking a towel in cold water and placing it at the end of my bed, keeping windows open during the night, having the fan directly on my feet, and rubbing lotion onto my feet. ALL HAVE PROVEN UNSUCCESFUL!

It has now come to the point where I have consulted with my Doctor and she informed me that there is nothing that she can do.

Has anyone got any suggestions to this very annoying problem???

   Hey,

i've had the same thing forever, to the point where i thought it was a normal thing to do for people to fill the bath in the middle of the night and just stand in frickin cold water until my feet freeze. Then i desperately try and go to sleep before my feet get hot again!

I've just started going to an accupuncturist and she says that this condition is due to kidney and diet problems. I've been taking lots of vitamins and MOST IMPORTANTLY drinking loads of water every day and my sleep has improved massively. I'm now waking up once or twice in the night compared to 6-8. Its only been a week since i started so it could be a coincidence (the nights have just got colder!) or maybe not. I just thought i'd share this with you as people who sleep right through the night don't have a clue what we go through!

   After years of suffering with this, I have finally looked it up and found this page. I dont get it often, about once a week I guess, sometimes after s__, sometimes for no reason at all. Dont feel hot to the touch. It absolulely drives me crazy when I cant sleep because of something that seems so silly. Nice to know I'm not the only one plagued with this problem. Thanks for all the comments. Now I dont feel completely alone on this one.

   I just read back aways and saw a note regarding homeopathic sulfer. I had read elswhere that hot feet could be a sign of reduced sulfer in the system. I am curious as I didn't realize sulfer was an estenial mineral. Where would you buy this stuff...how much would you take? I have been suffering with hot feet since I was a child and have used more ice water than even I can imagine trying to keep them cool. I am willing to try just about anything once to relieve this irritant.

funny there should be a new post in this discussion, as i just asked my acupunturist friend abotu hot feet.

she said this is either due to some deficiency or abundancy in the body. certain deficiencies can be hereditary.

my advice: go to the acupuncturist and they can help figure out what the deficiency/abundancy is....and give you some herbs or treatments to help.

   I have seen the new postings on the board and I wanted to comment. I understand that everyone's problem maybe different so don't take what I say and etch it in stone. I have listed before that my feet burn most of the time. I feel as if they are stuck in a boiling pot of water. It happens all the time no matter if I'm on them or not. I have gone o several people who practiced acupunture and a few chiropractors. I do believe in these practices but they didn't help me any. A friend recommended a natural food supplement called Ganoderma. You can find info on the product at www.ganoexcel.com. Basically what the product does is that it is a detoxin. It takes several weeks to start working and possibly up to 3 years to fully clean out your system. What is does is help your body to help it heal itself. The product has made improvements in the frequency and intensity. I might add that I know close to 20 individuals who have taken it for a variety of problems and have had great results. The thing about the product is that you must drink a lot of water to kick off the process and maintain it. Hope that might help others.

   I have the same "hot feet" problem, but within the past year or so, it has gotten a lot worse. I used to only experience the burning at night, but about a year ago, the burning became more severe at night and now I've found that my feet are hot during the day too! Since I live in California it hasn't been out of the ordinary to wear open toed shoes every day, which helps a lot. But I just went to Michigan for Christmas and was very concerned because I HAD to wear my sandals there at all times, even in the 30 degree, snowy weather! I'm starting to fear that something is really wrong with me. Have you had any luck since your last post?

   I get this too. As you described it. Not painful burning, just can't fall alseep hot. At its worst I have to apply a cool compress. When I was pregnant it was unbearable. I think it is some how a circulation issue because I can occasionally get relief from massaging my feet with a tennis ball.

   I know that this goes away from the topic..... but what is it about women and feet? I would have said their feet, but I've watched women stare at another womans feet for hours. Why does every woman think their feet are pretty? Feet are NOT attractive! A woman will hide her stomach because she gained 2 pounds, but proudly display her size 1o feet with long toes.I'm tired of seeing feet! It almost makes me dread summer.Women: Feet are not fashion accessories! There is nothing worse than seeing a beautiful woman in a nice dress and flip-flops.Very few men find feet attractive. Most of us laugh at your ugly feet.Now women are taller. Now I can understand that a taller women will have bigger feet, but whats with the 5'1 girl with a size 11 foot.And I'm sure I'll get the women who say " I know I have uglyfeet. I only wear sandals for comfort." These are the same women who kick their sandals off in a resturant. If sandals are so comfortable, why are women in such a hurry to take them off?I don't want to see people's feet, but people have a right to wear them. If thats the case, it should be my right to walk around naked. I can gurantee you my body is more attractive then most womens feet!

   I’ve been plagued with the nighttime HOT FEET syndrome for years. I used to soak them in ice water which gave relief. But for the last year I have been using the muscle rub crèmes that are for relief of sore muscles, like ‘Icy Hot’ or ‘Aspercreme’. I rub my feet with a liberal amount of the crème and before I know it I’m back asleep without hot feet. Sometimes it doesn’t last all night so I reapply. For me it’s easier that the icy water soaks.

   I suffered with this exact problem for l5 years. Everything you are saying is quite familiar to me. And, I know how horrible it is to tell doctors about your symptoms and they don't believe you. They think its all in your head. I had tried everything and I also considered diabetes to be a factor, but it is not. Call me and I can tell you what to do your for feet. It is non-intrusive, and in my case, the relief was immediate. My phone number is 360 493-8824. and you too can rid yourself of those irritating hot feet.

Thanks!

   Look at http://www.podiatry4you.com/problems/hot_feet.htm

Hot Feet

If you have hot feet especially in bed at night cooling creams may help relieve the hot feeling. Hot feet may be due to a number of problems, especially nerve problems from diabetes, alcoholism, nutritional deficiencies eg vitamin B12, thiamin,anaemia,arsenic, lead poisoning, fungal infection, synthetic materials, circulation.

   I also have hot feet and they get hotter as the day goes on, but I am in Australia - now is the hot time of the year.
I just wonder how many of you use acrylic doonas. Try going back to old fashioned blankets or cotton cellular blankets with cotton doona. These acrylic doonas do not breathe so the heat builds up under the doona and between the sheets.
You will find you sleep better and the excess heat gets out.

   I have the same problem - most of the time hanging my feet out helps, other times I run cold water from the shower over them. I did read the following on the Calgary Foot Clinic site (www.foottalk.com) - my feet are hot, so it's not nerves. I know need to investigate further.

"There are two types of burning feet, those which feel like they are burning, but are not actually hot, and those which are actually increased in temperature. Anything which increases the flow of blood to the feet will warm them. This may result from exercise, alcohol consumption, some vascular disorders, inflammation, and infection. Anything which insulates the foot can reduce heat loss and increase the temperature of the feet, for example socks, stockings and shoes. The false perception of "hot" feet is due to changes in the nervous system. This may occur in the peripheral nerves, spinal cord, or brain. Nerve tissue may be damaged by age, impaired circulation, injury, or mechanical irritation. Conditions such as diabetes mellitus, alcohol abuse, and nutritional deficiencies may damage nerves and result in the feeling of burning feet. In some cases nerve damage is reversible. Your podiatrist may help to determine the cause of your burning feet, or direct you to the proper specialist. In spite of medical evaluation, the cause of burning feet is sometimes never determined."

Good luck to everyone who has this problem - it's a real pain!

   I have the same problem, however my feet do not feel like they are boiling, just hot and uncomfortable. They also turn red and feel hot to the touch. I keep a spray bottle next to the bed and spray the feet when they get hot, it usually works.

I get hot feet at night after being in bed for about an hour. My husband says the room is like a fridge but my feet are hot. It is ok once I get to sleep but is the getting to sleep that is the problem.

I do not drink a lot once a week if that. I do not have a lot of salt. But i do smoke.

I got gout this time last year which lasted for 2 months I am only just 40 The gout cleared and everything was ok until two weeks ago.

I wonder if it is the time of year ie gout last year hot feet this?

I used to have really cold legs at the bottom below my knee above my ankle I wonder if this is to do with circurlation.

Gout however is to do with acid could it be something to do with acid in your body.

Just trying to find a comon factor.

   I am not going to be any help, but ...
I could have written your letter. I am a 51 year old male and I only suffer from hot feet at night, usually between midnight and 5:am. If I can get 2 or 3 hours of sleep per nite it's a good thing. Last night, for instance, I got up and watched bad TV. I noticed that the outside of my feet were getting chilly from being uncovered but I still had the hot feet sensation. Wierd.

   I'm really glad that there are people with the same problem that I have. Ever since I was a child I have suffered from hot feet. I can remember wearing those pajamas with the footies and tearing holes in the ankles so I could stick my hot little feet out. It usually occurs when I begin to relax and start to fall asleep. It also seems like no matter how many times I move my feet to cool places they are never satisfied. I have lost many hours of sleep to hot feet. Hopefully some of your suggestions can help me!

   Had blood drawn just this morning testing for diabetes??

Have had fair luck with placing a box fan, running on high, by the bed and putting my feet out in its breeze. When they're really-really bad I've tried sitting in my chair wrapped in a quilt with my feet out, inches from the fan until they cool. It can take 15 to 30 minutes but when I return to bed I sleep for three or four hours.

Another trick I've tried with some success is going into the shower, pjs and all. With the pants legs pulled up a bit I stand with the coldest water running on my feet for five minutes or so. My least favorite because the cold is such a shock at first, but it too--works.

On top of all this I keep the thermostat low at night so the air from the floor fan is truly cool.

I too get the hot feet.

Last night was the third in a row that I couldn't sleep because of them. Or sleep properly that is. I have this semi-sleep, where I can dream, but I never really lose consciousness properly like when you sleep.
It is not restful! The longest contintuous period of nights i've had like this was three weeks. You start to feel crazy.

I tend to get them when I walk around more during the day. And perhaps more when the weather is hot during the day (even though it might be cold that night).

Now when i think about it, i must get it during the day but dont notice so much because I mostly where open shoes (& thongs to that jerk who berated women for exposing their feet). But i avoid closed shoes as much as posible becasue they usually make my feet hot. Thankfully my uni student life allows me to do this.

I laughed in sympathy with the person who tried wearing cold wet socks. I have done the same thing.
Plus the cold water, plus the fan, plus the ice pack.
These generally dont work. It seems to be a matter of time.

I don't know how to solve it other than physically exhausting oneself so much that they have to sleep. Which is not a desirable solution.

My sympathy for all fellow sufferers.
Thanks for the helpful suggestions.
NOw i can prove to people who think im crazy that there many more out there with the same problem.

   i get hot feet about half an hour after going to bed. they're hot to the touch, too. i had terrible insomnia last night.

one of my friends is a doctor, and this is what he said:

Erythromelagia is feet and hands that are sensitive to heat and touch
and is associated with a blood/circulatory disorder called
Polycythemia Vera..this doesn't sound like what you have otherwise
you would have had it for longer. People who feel as though their
feet are burning from the inside out and do NOT feel hot to the touch
have a small fiber peripheral neuropathy (damage of the small nerves
in your feet or hands) which can be a sign of diabetes, hepatitis/
liver failure, HIV and any number of chronic diseases which also does
NOT sound like what you have. This sounds like a vascular phenomenon
to me. You know how some people have cold hands and feet all of the
time (like me!) they seem to have a lower number of capillaries in
their extremities (hands and feet) and thus have a relative vascular
insufficiency. Since the blood in your capillaries is what heats
your skin that decreased number of blood flowing to your hands and
feet leads to cold hands and feet. I think you have the opposite
problem. You have a relatively higher number of capillaries in your
feet and this causes your feet to feel warmer to the touch due to
increased blood flow. The reason you only feel it at night has to do
with several factors. Blood flow to your arms, legs, hands and feet
is regulated by your autonomic nervous system which essentially
readjusts itself when you go from standing/sitting up to laying
down. In addition, it can relate to your hydration status and can
also be influenced by alcohol consumption, time spent on your feet
during the day (mechanical compression) or ill-fitting shoes. As far
as what to do...there is nothing I know of that can help other than
symptomatic treatment. You can buy silicone gel booties that you
keep in the freezer during the day and put on at night to get to
sleep. Or soak them in cold water prior to going to bed. Sorry I
can't be of more help...a neurologist might be more helpful...

   Here is the answer from Mayoclinic for hot sticky feet:
Burning feet
Q.
What causes a burning sensation in the feet?
Francis/ Texas

A.

Burning feet may be a temporary problem, such as due to athlete's foot or sensitivities to fabrics or leather dyes. But when this symptom occurs over a longer period, it can indicate a serious disorder and should be evaluated by a doctor.

One serious cause of chronic burning feet is sensory peripheral neuropathy. This results from damage to the nerves that transmit sensation from the arms, hands, legs and feet to the brain. Causes of sensory peripheral neuropathy include:

* Diabetic neuropathy
* Alcohol abuse
* Vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia (pernicious anemia)

Treatment of burning feet is directed at the underlying condition, if known. To help relieve discomfort, try these tips:

* Wear socks made of cotton — which allows your feet to "breathe" — rather than synthetic fabrics.
* Avoid standing for long periods.
* Take a pain reliever when needed.
* Bathe your feet in cool water.

   I also have the ghastly hot feet, making it impossible to sleep. I am awoken most nights by them, after a couple of hours and usually they don't cool off until 3 or 4 in the a.m. After years of misery I found that- in my case -they are caused by food allergies. I keep a food diary now and have discovered a number of food allergies (wheat/pork/cabbage family, ready made foods with lots of ingredients, etc.). I do much better if I just have salad with olive oil and apple cider vinegar in the evening, and also eat about 5 or 6 p.m. You can also experiment with different salad ingredients. Beets seem to cause the problem for me. If you don't know anything about food allergy there are lots of helpful books.
Hope this helps. I would love to hear back from you if it does. I sympathize !

   Hi, I have exactly the same problem. The only way I can deal with it is to get up, wrap my foot (it only happens to my right foot) in a wet towel wrapped around a cold pack, then put it all in a plastic bag and go back to bed. But I have found that if I go for a good walk in the afternoon or evening I don't get 'hot foot'. My doctor partner says I don't have diabetes or a blood circulation problem, and it has got him puzzled. Can anyone throw any more light on this. By the way my sister has it too. We are in our sixties, and it has only started in the last two years.

   I have written several messages on this forum and so I will spare the elaborate description of the same problems most all of us have in common. I have been going to every doctor and medical professional avaliable and nothing ever turns up. I just recently got referred to a Dr. Harati in Houston, TX who is the head over the neurological department at The Baylor College of Medicine. I researched him and he is supposed to be World Renowned for his studies and advances in the field. He started me with the common labs and now is running test that are special to their College. From what I here if he can't find what causes it no one can so I will keep you all posted.

   First of all, am I the only one noticing that not only are my feet hot, but they do not sweat??? (Also, my hands sweat little or none, but I have less of a problem with them.)

I read over half-way through this topic and then finally had to stop because I could have been here all night on that one! Anyway, I did get some ideas I thought I might share. First of all, someone said allergies and that clicked immediately! I have allergies - mostly food, but also skin and respiratory allergies, etc. These allergies affect a lot of things you might not expect a food allergy to affect, including circulation, soft-tissue problems, nervous system (and depression) problems, and many more! I used to have a big problem with constantly cold feet. In fact, I rarely noticed they were cold - hardly felt it - but to the touch they were freezing, and they didn't really feel warm to me either I guess. However, avoiding food allergens solved this. Now I'm at the other extreme, chronically hot feet, way too often and too easily. Which brought me to another thought: water and salt. But before I go there...

Someone mentioned detox, and that clicked. Not only can detox sometimes help with allergies...it made me think of yeast infections, which I may at this time have. Yeast actually grows as a fungal infection inside the intestines, and especially once it reaches its second, and invasive, stage, it toxifies the body. In fact, it pokes holes in the small intestine and lets toxins direction into the blood. In some cases, food allergies can be linked to or possibly even caused by yeast infections. And food allergies can be linked to most if not nearly all common ailments, including depression, ADD, or other neuralogical disorders, not to mention almost any type of ailment you can name (respiratory, pulminary, whatever)! And food allergies are becoming more and more of a problem with today's proccessed foods, fast food, even pure, fresh, genetically altered vegetables!

But even more ailments, including allergies themselves, can be linked to a very common and mostly unknown problem: dehydration. Definately check out www.watercure.com and www.watercure2.org. See, common table salt is very unhealthy - but not having enough salt is just as unhealthy. In its natural form and when still combined with beneficial minerals (in other words, unrefined!), salt is a very healthy - and very vital - component in our diets. Without it, our body cannot use much of the water we take in - which in itself isn't always much. Water regulates circulation (so if you have low circulation or high blood pressure...doesn't matter, it will help).

And to back that up...I had been having a problem with somewhat hot feet for a while up until sometime this year. But also sometime this year I started once again using whole, gray sea salt. And now that I'm aware of it, I don't remember having a problem with my feet during that time! Now, it is worse than ever - I have moved into my parents' old place, and there is no sea salt in the cupboard. Now, my feet are extremely hot all the time, especially at night it seems (or maybe I just notice it then), but also during the day. So do me a favor! If you are having this problem, or anything like this (or any problem for that matter), try to every day follow the advice on the watercure site:

How much water?
Half your body weight in ounces. If you weigh 200 lbs., you will need 100 oz. of water. That is approx. 3 quarts. A quart is 32 oz. A 1.5 liter bottle has 6 servings of 8 oz., which makes it 48 oz..
(to make it simpler, your weight in pounds (ie 200lbs) divided in half (ie 200lb/2=100) and that figure is the number of ounces per day of water (ie 100 ounces/day). Divide # of ounces by 8 to find number of cups. (ie 100/8= 12 1/2 cups of water/day)

How much salt and how do I use it?
¼ tsp. per quart of water you drink daily (1 quart=4 cups). You can put the ¼ tsp. of sea salt "IN" the bottle of water, or season your food, as it is suggested, or lick some off the palm of your hand, and then drink some water. What is important is that you get the proper balance throughout the day. You can't take all your salt in just two times a day, no more than you could do all your breathing in only two times a day. You cannot drink half of your water in one sitting and then the rest later that day and expect to be fully hydrated.

Where can I get good sea salt?
You can call 1-800-TOP-SALT. (800-867-7258) This is the Grain Salt Society, 273 Fairway Drive, Asheville, North Carolina 28805. This is the best that we have found. It contains 84 trace minerals. Another one is the Redmond Mineral, Inc., P.O. Box 219, Redmond, Utah 84652. 1-435-529-7402. Their sea salt has over 70 trace minerals in it. BE CAREFUL when buying sea salt or Celtic Sea Salt. If it does not list minerals on the back, the odds are that you have just bought expensive, prettier packaged table salt. All salt came from the sea at one point. So it is legal for anyone to label their low grade salt as sea salt. Good Celtic Sea Salt is NOT white or dry.

Also, try to watch what you eat. Check lables for soy, milk, eggs, corn, or wheat (or MSG - Monosodium Glucomate). Also watch for lables that say Natural Flavour or Spices as this can contain any or all of those, and then some! (Also, for soy and corn, anything that says "vegatable oil" or "vegatable shortening", lecithin, glycerine, gelatin (though vegetable source should not be labeled as gelatin), mono- and/or di-glycerides, etc, can be derivitives so watch out - even if it supposedly as a low or no protein content.) If you see any of these on the label watch how you react to the food. WATCH FOR ANY CHANGE AT ALL - OR ANY WORSENING OF CONDITIONS! If you notice a pattern, it may indicate a food allergy.

Try at least some of this! If nothing else, drink more water! Let us all know if it works/doesn't work for you. Remember that a lot of this, dehydration (even mild thirst is a sign of this since by the time your body tells you it's thirsty, you are already dehydrated), food allergies, digestive yeast infections, etc will probably not be diagnosed by your doctor. Even things like diabetes, cancer, asthma, alzheimers! can be symptoms of a larger problem rather than just the problem itself. (Did you know that cancer is not a disease, just a symptom? It is caused by a pathogen inside your system and can be successfully not just treated, but cured! Check out information on the Hoxey treatment - it's not bull, I personally know people who have used it to great success! I would stake my life on using it.) So don't let your doctor pass you off some half-baked answer, or immediately push some medicine on you. Do your research! Consult natural health professionals, such as homeopathic or naturopathic doctors, chiropractors, etc, tell them all your symptoms not just one or a few...I'm sure there is an answer.

As soon as I can afford it I will again try the sea salt regularly, and I will make more of an effort to avoid ALL the foods I know I shouldn't be eating, both for allergies and yeast infection (since I have been cheating lately :-S) and will try to keep you updated on the effects.

Hope this helps someone!! And sorry for rambling on, and on, and on, and on, and...well, you get the idea!


PS: Someone mentioned B vitamins - not only do they help reduce emotional stress, but physical stress on the body as well. Plus, B5 is good for helping with allergies!! Coincidence???? And...someone also mentioned thyroid. I am waiting for results from a test, but I have been having a problem with glands....maybe not thyroid, but glands nonetheless. And...it was recommended to me that I try reflexology as the problem may be a blocked gland. More food for thought...

   i just came to this site...have noticed sometimes my feet feel hot but like many here say...they arent hot to the touch. i also put one outside the blankets at night and seems to take care of the problem. mine will get to feeling hot when i'm sitting around watching tv mostly. Sugar Diabetes runs in my family and i see it is a symptom of diabetes....Will have some tests run in three months and will see how my blood sugar looks. its always been a bit high but not bad enough to signify diabetes. mine has not gotten as bad as some here and for that i'm terribly grateful.....thanks roz

I just read about your issue on the internet. I have the same issue. Burning feet waking me up at night, and then cold feet during the day. I have asked a doctor, who had no answer, I had my thyroid checked and various other tests that were all okay.

Do you have any new insight. I see that your message is 2 years old.

   Hey,
i've had the same thing forever, to the point where i thought it was a normal thing to do for people to fill the bath in the middle of the night and just stand in frickin cold water until my feet freeze. Then i desperately try and go to sleep before my feet get hot again!

I've just started going to an accupuncturist and she says that this condition is due to kidney and diet problems. I've been taking lots of vitamins and MOST IMPORTANTLY drinking loads of water every day and my sleep has improved massively. I'm now waking up once or twice in the night compared to 6-8. Its only been a week since i started so it could be a coincidence (the nights have just got colder!) or maybe not. I just thought i'd share this with you as people who sleep right through the night don't have a clue what we go through!

   I also get hot feet and I've been told by a podiatrist that it's toxins at the end of the day being released - sounds a little weird, but she told me to try and put my feet up - lie down with my feet high up on pillows - in the middle of the day for 10 minutes or so. It does seem to help a lot, plus I wear great, but expensive, shoes called MBTs which are fantastic! I highly recommend them for anyone with feet problems! Walking a lot every day helps with the burning feet as well. Good luck!

   I have the same problem - my feet are so hot at night that I can't sleep. The rest of me can be covered up and chilly but the feet are hot.

My general health is excellent - I do not have diabetes, am not over weight, don't take any medication that would account for it. This only happens at night. I can be walking outside wearing socks & boots and the feet are just fine.

Have you gotten any good info?

   My cure, which always works for me, is to drink a pint of cold water if I am woken by "hot feet". Within 20 minutes the problem is cured.

   I have been suffering from feet that get really hot when I try to sleep. I was worried because all of my searches came to diabetes (which is in my family), i found out that I didn't have diabetes. However I found a type of neuropathy that had all of my symptoms. It suggested taking a B 12 complex to help repair the nerves in the feet (I don't know how they get damaged, they just do). Since after about 2 weeks I noticed that I wasn't having the same pain. It hasn't completely gone away, but even on the worst nights I can still sleep pretty comfortably.

B 12 works! Best sleep I have had in 4 years!

   Hi,

I have had "hot" feet for as long as I can remember. As a child my Mom had to cut the feet off the one piece pajamas so that I could try to cool them off. I have spent more nights up than asleep from the excruciating pain of feeling like my feet were burning up from the inside out. Almost like lava is flowing in my feet! Done the feet hanging out of the bed, the standing in the bath in cold water, standing on cold cement,...blah blah, blah. Doctors looked at me like I was a crazy person...

*******But the good news is that I went to a healing intuitive/accupuncturist in Boulder, Colorado who told me that it is connected to the kidneys....in my case, one was weak and the other over-exerted to make up for it. She gave me a chinese herb: Zuo Gui Wan - Restore Left Kidney Formula (you should see an accupuncturist to make sure you get the correct formula). It is made by Qualiherb (which you can only get through an accupuncturist etc.)

I started taking it for 2 months and NO MORE HOT FEET!!!! Now I just take it when I feel them getting hot and within about 5 minutes, they are back to normal. It has been a miracle for me.

I hope this helps - and good luck!
Adina

I have finally discovered something that helps me sleep, after suffering with burning hot feet for many years. Just before I go to sleep I tell myself that MY FEET WILL NOT GET HOT. If I wake up and they are hot, I cool them and then tell myself that again. I started this 3 nights ago and have had 3 quite good nights, each night a little better than the last. These were the best nights of sleep I have had for several years. In fact my life has been ruined by my burning feet (sometimes burning hands too). The insomnia and lack of sleep have made it impossible to live a normal life, as you all know. The heat varies in degree - sometimes mild, sometimes unbearable. My feet and hands are perfectly normal during the day. I do not have diabetes, am not overweight, I eat well, don't take any medications (sleeping pills sometimes in desperation). I do have allergies though, especially to food something I only discovered about eight years ago.

I use only cotton sheets and blankets and keep socks and shoes as 'natural' as possible (some of the newer leather shoes now have antibacterial properties though). I eat organic as much as possible, fruit more than sugary desserts. I avoid GM foods (as far as one can tell) since some are saturated with high levels of pesticide built in.

I think hot feet are probably due to a weakened immune system, caused by the various and numerous chemicals we are all exposed to nowadays (chemicals do not have to be proven safe, they have to be proven unsafe, which takes years. Approx. 4000 new chemicals are introduced each year. When a product is banned manufacturers can change one ingredient and then rename and start selling it again.) I took particular interest in what one person on this site wrote, that hot feet are caused by toxins leaving the body !!! Also I think complicated by undiagnosed food allergies in many cases.

I have been taking sulfur (homeopathic) since I found a site online that recommended that, also dairy-free refrigerated acidophilus. I also try to avoid tomato sauce at night and curried foods, since they seem to make me worse, altho I will eat them earlier in the day. I know quite a bit about food allergies if anyone wants to write me with questions. My email is ------------@---.com

Best of luck. Hope this helps other people.

   I found out finally what caused my hot feet. IT WAS PLASTIC CONTAINERS.
I ran out of bottled water, and decided to save some money by using tap water. During that time my feet stopped being hot, however I did not connect the two. When my next bottles were delivered my hot feet came back immediately. I have now stopped using plastic at all, even for storage or plastic wrap and my hot feet are no more. I only had them at night, starting about half an hour after I would get to sleep and continuing until about 4 a.m. or later. They would vary in intensity and sometimes my hands would be hot too.

Wow, I can function again. I have my life back !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

   Hello I also have been having hot feet, one thing that caught my eye in the stuff I have been reading is that Vit. B might help.... I had just stopped takeing my daily 50 mg of B complex due to meds that I have began takeing and that is when the hot feet thing started for me. I really think that Vit. B might be the answer. I intend to take it as soon as I am off of the antibiotic......

   I have had this problem for years also, and have recently found that taking Benadryl at bedtime helps a good deal. I buy the 'free' kind,that has no dye. Some nights I have to take two, but it is probably better than sleeping pills.

   Take MILK THISTLE. I figured that this problem is caused by toxins,(if you rule out diabetes) and learned that milk thistle cleans your liver. I started taking one at night with a glass of water, about an hour before bed and after the second night my feet have either been a normal temperature or very mildly warm. The nights they were slightly warm I had eaten spicy food which I knew was a problem, but thought the milk thistle might overcome it. I am like a new person, able to sleep again ! I dream properly again, instead of spending my nights in an uneasy sleep. I imagine that one should give the pills a break now and then, but have not researched that yet.
