:confused: For about 2 years now, my left ankle/foot has been going numb. My orthopedic surgeon said it was not connected to my back problems but he put me on Neurontin to ease the symptoms. All this medicine does is enable me to sleep better. Of late, the soles of my feet burn at night; it is unbearable. Part of my right hand is also going numb now. Is it possible that I have Beriberi?

Is it possible that I have Beriberi?you need to stop suppressing symptoms. listen to your body.you have deficiency of nutrients, and you have toxicity in your system.Perhaps you need extra vitamin B- all of them. Their deficiency causes that burning feet thingy. You need to get a toxic load off your system.Learn about alkaline/acid dietfood combiningfood that detoxifies the organstake detox baths with vinegar/ epson salts, green natural clay, ginger, etc.Visit a Doctor of Alternative Medicine.
