What causes numbness in one foot along with burning, excruciating pain in two toes of that same foot?

Neuroma??: This could be a problem in the foot itself or even be coming from your back. There are nerves in the foot that can develop growths called neuromas. This can result in your symptoms. I would recommend seeing a podiatrist.
Dr. Alan Ettinger
Podiatry 49 years experience
Neuroma: You described the classic symptoms of a neuroma. The most common area for pain is the 3rd and 4th toes.
Dr. Randy Lisch
Podiatry 38 years experience
Probably a neuroma: These symptoms in between the 2 toes are usually classic symptoms of a morton's neuroma- a pinched nerve in between the metatarsal/toe area. See your podiatrist so that the neuroma symptoms do not get worse or grows larger.
