Yes: Burning pain can be caused by several conditions, including diabetes, sciatica and lumbar spine issues. Burning pain is nerve related and finding the cause will help with the treatment. If the pain constant and wakes you up at night it could be neuropathy. If it is intermittent and worse when standing or sitting for long periods, it may be from your back. See a neurologist for evaluation.
