Default My palms of my hands are burning bad..

The last couple of days I noticed the palms of my hands a little hot feeling., but nothing much to complain about., well let me tell you today they are on fire..and so are the soles of my feet...Have no idea., can this be a symptom, I didn't think it was. I go to my GP on wednesday., maybe he will have an answer., I am on prednisone., but prior to that I was on mestinon., and had swollen burning palms., swollen eyes and lips., so they took me off mestonin., and eventually all symptoms left., now this is happening., any suggestions?

That used to be one of my first "warning signs" that I was about to have trouble, but I don't think it's related to MG. I was low on vitamin D and potassium and since I got that caught up, I haven't noticed the burning pain. I would stand on cold tiles (or even out in the snow on occassion) to get relief for my feet, and hold ice cold drinks just for that effect on my hands. I always thought it was part of my "other" problem, but I'm thinking now it was the deficiency.

Mine didn't swell or change colors at all, just burn and ache - typically they would ache for a while first then start the burning. This has been a sx of mine since my very first bout in 1997. You probably should mention it to your neuro. Maybe they need to run some B12, D, Potasium, or ? on you, or maybe he/she has other ideas.

I hope you get some relief soon. I know how uncomfortable and annoying that is!

Best of luck to you, and let me know what you find out. Hopefully someone smarter than myself will hop on hear with some more valuable input.

Stay "cool"!
