Stop Googling: I can assure you - you don't have the dreaded anxiety-diabetes-AIDS-Lyme Disease syndrome. See your doctor your some simple blood tests to check for diabetes. There are many reasons for these symptoms and most are not going to kill you.

Multiple causes: Quite a few disease conditions can cause burning sensation in your feet. Neuropathy (disease of the nerve) can be from diabetes, certain vitamin deficiencies (b6, B1 etc..), some medications/drugs, HIV diseases, multiple sclerosis, nerve compressions from back, or even just Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS)--which I suspect most likely cause for you. I advise consulting doc to find out ASAP. Good Luck
