Hello doctor,

I have a burning sensation on the feet for three days. I am currently under Clonazepam.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Causes of burning feet include peripheral neuropathy and plantar fasciitis. I suggest you use footwear even at home and take over-the-counter pain medications to alleviate pain. You may also use Diclofenac gel for local application. If the symptoms do not subside over one month, please get electroneuromyography of the lower limbs to look for nerve involvement.
