Desiree, it might be due to nerve damage due to diabetes or something like a chronic vitamin B deficiency, or a vascular problem due to a host of obscure disorders, but most of the time we can't find any cause for "burning feet syndrome". The best would be for her to see her doctor to make sure there is nothing wrong, but I doubt that he will find something. She can also try taking something like Berroca CalmagĀ® to see if it won't work. Good luck.
