Burning Sensation In Arch Of Foot
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).

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 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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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.
