Quick Reference

Nutritional melalgia (neuralgic pain): severe aching, throbbing, and burning pain in the feet, associated with nerve damage, observed in severely under nourished prisoners of war in the Far East. It results from long periods on a diet poor in protein and B vitamins, and may (doubtfully) be due specifically to a deficiency of pantothenic acid.
