What Could Be Causing the Problems with My Feet and Legs?

Do you have
numbness, tingling, burning, or pain 
in your feet and legs?

You might be one of the tens of millions of Americans who suffer from a treatable vitamin deficiency that damages the nerves in the feet and legs.

Thankfully, there’s help!

It’s becoming more and more common—tens of millions of people are experiencing burning, tingling, numbness, and pain in their feet and legs—and although most people suffer in silence or take ineffective medications, these problems may be corrected rapidly and safely with the right vitamin formulation.

These symptoms occur when the nerves in your feet and legs stop working properly, and they can make your life miserable. People most often describe these feelings as though their feet are in wax, or their socks are crumpled up in their shoes, or they feel strange and annoying sensations from which there is no relief. Some feel as if their feet are on fire or being bitten by insects. The problem usually begins in the big toes, generally of both feet, and over time spreads to the other toes and into the balls of the feet and up the legs. It sometimes affects the fingers and hands as well.  Medically, this is known as a “stocking-glove distribution” because it ascends in the same manner as if you were putting on stockings or gloves.

Numbness in the feet can have significant health consequences. Sensation is protective; diminished sensation can cause instability when walking and make you more prone to lose your balance and fall. If something is irritating your foot and you don’t feel it—such as a pebble in your shoe, a shoe that doesn’t fit well, an ingrown toenail, or a thousand other problems which may cause an infection or a wound­—treatment may be delayed and delayed treatment may make the problem become very serious very quickly. Impaired sensation in the feet is considered by doctors to be the leading cause of wounds, serious infections, and amputations of the feet and legs.

Many doctors believe that this problem is often caused by a nutritional issue. In fact, over the last few years, nutritional deficiency has been recognized by many physicians as one of the leading causes of burning, tingling, numbness, and nerve pain in the feet and legs.

As an example, Vitamin B1 is essential for the nerves in the body to work properly. When vitamin B1 is not available in adequate amounts, nerve cells can’t produce enough energy to function optimally. In the nerves of the feet and legs this leads to the uncomfortable symptoms mentioned above. It can also impair brain functioning, making your mind feel foggy or forgetful.

But why would someone become even mildly vitamin deficient in America today?  Doesn’t the food we eat provide us with adequate nutrition? Don’t the multivitamins we take make up for any dietary insufficiency? Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

Certain conditions can interfere with how your body absorbs vitamins from the foods you eat or impair how your body retains the vitamins that you have absorbed. For example, diabetics were recently discovered to be highly prone to vitamin B1 deficiency. People on certain medications (like water pills), the elderly, those dealing with obesity, people with a history of alcohol abuse, among others all tend to be vitamin B1 deficient. But no matter the cause, anyone experiencing burning, tingling, numbness, and nerve pain in the feet and legs should be aware that these are the first signs of vitamin B1 deficiency. Your diet or the supplements you are taking may not be supplying you with enough vitamin B1 for your nerves to work properly.

If you are suffering from burning, tingling, numbness, and pain in your feet and legs it makes sense to take a safe and effective formula and see if these sensations are improved. Generally, you’ll feel better in just 30 days.
