Possibly, it could be a case of diabetic neuropathy. Neuropathy is a common diabetic complication with burning sensation in different body parts as its symptom. You need to control this internal nerve damage in order to treat the burning sensation. Essentially, focus on maintaining healthy blood glucose levels. Take the right medicines and diet and indulge in regular exercises and other lifestyle habits to achieve the purpose. If the pain is too unbearable, you should consult your doctor immediately. He/she will prescribe drugs or nerve stimulation – magnetic therapy, laser therapy, electrical nerve stimulation or light therapy, as the case may be.
