Burning man syndrome diagnosed quite rare
A life drowned by a sea of intense pain
Without warning walking unable to bear
Red ink covering soles with red-hot coals
Yesterday's dreams cremated with goals
Specialist to specialist to Mayo...
Praying for strength and miracle repair

Rhyme Time 6 - Verses of Metaphors Contest
By Laura Loo
*Erythromelalgia is a rare progressive neurovascular condition that most commonly affects the feet, but may also occur in the hands, face, or other parts of the body. The term neurovascular means that both nerves and blood vessels are involved. It is characterized by intense, burning pain of affected extremities, severe redness (erythema), and increased skin temperature that may be episodic or almost continuous in nature. Etiology is unknown; symptomatic treatment only; no cure. Typically affects both sides of the body (bilateral), may sometimes involve only one side (unilateral). Triggering or worsening of symptoms with exposure to heat (heat intolerance) or exercise and relief with cooling. The disease course may be extremely variable from case to case.
