I have a burning sensation on the arch of my foot. It comes on really quick and goes fast as well but they are getting more frequent

Whenever: Whenever I hear the word "burning, " I think of an issue with a nerve. There is something called tarsal tunnel syndrome, which is like carpal tunnel in the hand, but in the foot. The posterior tibial nerve, which runs just behind the inside of the ankle, gets compressed between bone and a ligament, which can cause all sorts of problems, most notably pain anywhere on the bottom of the foot (and arch) as well as burning, numbness and other weird sensations. I recommend you see a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon and have this looked into. This is not something that shows up on an x-ray, but an x-ray is a good idea, just to make sure nothing else is wrong. Sometimes, tarsal tunnel syndrome can result from a bone spur pressing up against a nerve too. There are both conservative and surgical approaches to this. Hope this helps! Good luck!

How to treat burning sensation on bottome of foot?

SOME THOTS: You could possess a local nerve compressive phenomenon, such as tarsal tunnel syndrome, but might be also developing a systemic peripheral neuropathy. On occasion, plantar fasciitis or even heel spurs are the culprits. A podiatrist can ferret out the answer and perhaps provide control or alleviation.

I have a pain, more like a burning sensation on the outside of my foot, where the 5th metatarsal is located, what could that be?

Hard to say: Could be many things like neuroma, capsulitis, irritated nerve (s), metatarsalgia, neuropathy, etc.... More than likely it's just a temporary condition. Give it a couple of days and if symptoms don't subside go visit your podiatrist.

Burning sensation inside my left foot for long?

Tarsal tunnel: One possibility is that you might have tarsal tunnel syndrome. This a compression neuropathy similar to carpal tunnel syndrome in the hand. One has to see if there is any foot anatomic defect which is causing more pressure along that tibial nerve. I would recommend seeing a pmr doctor who specializes in this or a podiatrist. Sometimes EMG testing is needed. Braces, cortisone injections are tx.

What can I do to stop a burning sensation on top of foot?

Sounds nerve: You may have a nerve that is compressed. You want to find out what may be causing it and address the origin of the pain rather than just the symptom. This can be from swelling due to an adjacent inflamed muscle, edema from dependent positioning, engorged vessel, or contusion/injury. There can also be burning from a systemic disease, like diabetes. See a podiatrist.
