3 days ago I was told I have a small avulsion fracture of my navicular bone on my left foot. My heal of my foot has a burning pain. Is that normal?
Could be fungus: That is the most common culprit in that area or it could be the fourth toe and fifth toe rubbing against each other, sometime there may be a corn on either toe. If you see any peeling its likely fungus, or a crack in the web. So apply antifungal if its the latter put cotton in between the two toes to avoid them hitting each other. ...Read more
Burning sensation in my toes, it happens on and off...But more frequently of late, it's only present on two toes on my right foot?
Need testing: Burning in your toes could signify a problem with your nerve endings called neuropathy. Consider getting your blood sugar tested, as neuropathy related to diabetes is common. Could be mechanical and something called a neuroma -- nerve bundle at the web spaced between those 2 toes is irritated. Wider toebox shoes and anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen, naproxen, etc) could help. ...Read more

Burning sensation in top of right foot by all toes lasts for 10 sec comes &goes. Told docror. Not concerned. Not diabetic. What would cause this?
Varies: There is a nerve on the tip of the foot that supplies that area and is superficial, it is possible that you are developing a neuroma there. I would make sure you are not wearing any shoe wear that could be irritating the top of the foot. There are other potential causes as well. Don't hesitate to see a podiatrist or orthopedist for it. ...Read more
I am experiencing foot numbness and burning sensation. My plantar nerve was removed. Should half of my big toe be numb?
Unclear: Not sure why you had either/both of your plantar nerves removed - nor any past history of relevant diseases associated with a neuropathy. The innervation of the top of the foot and the bottom are different, and the lack of plantar nerve (s) make it more complex. Please consult your doctor who can sort through all of these issues to localize the issue and additional tests to define it better. ...Read more

Fascia and food:
So much pain in the body is from repetitive injury to muscle and fascia that you might seek examination by a specialist who understands myofascial pain. The pain in your feet can come from your calves, feet, or even thigh and buttocks. Psoriasis and this pain can also be related to inflammation from your food. Stress may also contribute.

Feel a tendon or something moving side to side in base of big toe. Pain and sometimes burning sensation when walking was after slamming side of foot?
Walk this Way.: There are quite a few structures that have the ability to move side to side, associated with the base of the big toe. A slamming injury could injure any one or more of them effecting the stability of the toe and toe joint. Pain and burning are the body's way of letting you know this. It is best to have the toe examined and possibly x-rayed to remove all doubt. ...Read more

How red, how hot.: I guess RA might be a possibility, but my money goes with gout as a better possibility. There could be a cellulitis secondary to overuse, trauma or even foreign body insertion.

On occasion, plantar fasciitis or even heel spurs are the culprits. A podiatrist can ferret out the answer and perhaps provide control or alleviation. ...Read more
A few things: It could be due to plantar fasciitis, an injury, overuse, worn out shoes, tarsal tunnel syndrome (think carpal tunnel but at the ankle level instead of wrist), arthritis, peripheral neuropathy due to radiculopathy (spinal nerve issues) or medical reasons (such as diabetes, thyroid or circulatory issues).
