Burning Nerve pain: Generally, burning is nerve pain, but not always. Stressed legs? Assume this means after being on your feet? You may have a nerve entrapment, either @ the inside of the ankle (tarsal tunnel), around the knee (common peroneal nerve or the tibial nerve @ the soleus sling behind the knee), or may be coming from your back, with pressure on nerves exiting the spinal column. You need through examination.

Burning Legs: Burning in the legs can be from sciatic nerve radiation pain (from a back problem) or DVT (blood clot). Both of these should be worked up and you should start with an orthopod. You may just have tight calves needing very deep massage or some version of compartment syndrome. Dr rich blake.
