Burning Foot in Pregnant Women.jpg

During pregnancy, women experience many changes, and these changes are often uncomfortable changes caused by hormones.

Burning feet during pregnancy is one of the most common complaints of women. The main reason for this situation is the changes in the structure of the feet depending on the weight gained during pregnancy.

Motherhood is both a very difficult and at the same time incredibly beautiful feeling. All the troubles will end when you hold your little baby in your arms.

At the beginning of the ordeals suffered, the problems arising from the hormones come. Burning feet during pregnancy is one of them. There is a possibility that you may be someone whose feet are constantly cold throughout your life. However, you may still have foot burning complaints during pregnancy.

Burning of the soles of the feet and even the palms from time to time is one of the common complaints of all expectant mothers. Let's examine together what the source of this complaint is.

What are the causes of foot burn during pregnancy?
There may be more than one reason for foot burning complaint during pregnancy. You just have to be confident that the main problem of your foot burning complaint is pregnancy.

Although the foot burning complaint due to pregnancy is a normal and not very important condition, if you have these complaints before pregnancy, do not neglect to consult a neurologist.

Causes of pregnancy-induced foot burn:
increase in hormones
During pregnancy, many hormone levels in the female body change. Hormones such as estrogen, hcg, progesterone, msh, oxytocin come at the beginning of hormones that change during pregnancy.

The main reason for the changes experienced by expectant mothers during pregnancy is the changes in the levels of these hormones.

With the end of your pregnancy, your hormones will also begin to balance and all your complaints arising from your hormones will decrease and disappear.

Do not forget that the problems you are experiencing are only one period, and you can get through this period more easily with the dream of reuniting with your baby.

gestational diabetes
It is a diabetes disease that occurs only during pregnancy. One of the signs of this ailment is foot burning.

This means that if you have gestational diabetes, this disease can cause the soles of your feet to burn.

Vitamin and magnesium deficiency
The most important thing that expectant mothers should not forget is that they should eat healthy. Besides, your baby in your womb should get all the vitamins and minerals you need for yourself.

In particular, expectant mothers who have deficiencies of B12, B16 and D vitamins complain of foot burning. In the same way, attention should be paid to the amount of magnesium that the body needs, as well as vitamin deficiency.

Magnesium deficiency is also a condition that causes foot burns. If the main reason for this ailment is vitamin deficiency, you can take supplements by consulting your doctor.

Mothers with hypothyroidism, a thyroid gland disease, experience burning sensations in their palms and soles due to the fact that the thyroid gland does not produce the necessary hormones in their bodies.

If you are faced with such a situation, we recommend that you consult your doctor for the most effective solution.

kidney ailments
Burning hands and feet during pregnancy can also be caused by problems with your kidneys. The accumulation of toxic substances in the blood brings the problem of hand and foot burns.

Flat foot formation due to weight gain
Depending on the weight gained during pregnancy, changes in the foot structure of expectant mothers may occur.

It is seen that the curvature of the soles of the feet collapses and the soles of the feet are flattened, and expectant mothers complain of foot burn. The most effective solution to this situation is not to stand for a long time and rest your feet as much as possible.

athlete's foot
If you have been complaining of negative changes such as burning, itching, and redness that have occurred in your feet recently, you should start treatment immediately.

Foot fungus is a condition that reduces your standard of living and causes a burning sensation in your feet.

Together with your doctor, you can find the most suitable treatment for you and get rid of this complaint.

The decision to accumulate edema in your body can also cause burns on your feet.

We recommend using compression stockings that regulate your blood flow and prevent edema formation during pregnancy. During this period, you should not choose tight clothes, especially.

If you feel most peaceful and good, you should use those clothes as much as possible.

elevation of blood pressure
It is very normal for your blood volume to increase during pregnancy. Approximately 40 percent of women's blood volume increases. This condition also causes increased blood flow to the hands and feet, which can cause foot burn.

These changes in our body also bring some problems. The increase in blood mass can also cause problems such as foot burn and fatigue.

stress and depression

Stress is the thing you need to protect yourself most, especially at this time. Stressing unnecessarily is harmful to both your own health and your baby's health.

Stress and depression are also one of the causes of foot burn complaints. We know that it is very difficult to keep up with the emotional changes you are going through. But you should try to keep yourself away from sad and stressful environments as much as possible.

In which period of pregnancy does foot burning complaint increase?

If we look at the period in which the foot burning complaint occurs, it actually depends on what the main cause of this ailment is. For example, if the root cause of your discomfort is due to hormonal changes, you may experience this discomfort in the first 3 months of your pregnancy.

However, if there is a disease caused by weight gain, you will feel more burning in the third trimester.

But the most important thing to know is that this discomfort is temporary and you will return to your old self a few weeks after your pregnancy ends.

If these complaints continue after delivery, you should consult your doctor immediately. If you experience something like this, take precautions without neglecting it.
