I have heat induced peripheral neuropathy in both feet. Neurologists, neurosurgeons, MRI's, etc., have not been able to determine the cause or a treatment and are puzzled by the symptoms being triggered by heat (usually 73 degrees or more room or outside temperature). If I keep my body temperature down there are no symptoms. The symptoms can be completely relieved by icing my feet. Does anyone have any input or experience with symptoms and/or treatment of this type of neuropathy? I can find no information anywhere on this heat trigger.
