Burning Sensation On Ball Of Foot
Burning top of foot near big toe where stretched nerve years ago after broken ankle. Also bone spurs in ball of foot. What to do for burning pain?
A burning sensation can be descriptive of nerve pain, some variations of migraine, and even central brain problems after a stroke. Have heard this said associated with phantom limb syndrome, reflex sympatheric dystrophy, and trigeminal neuralgia. Other patients might say ...Read more
Broke ankle/stretched nerve in '92. Have burning pain at top of foot/big toe area. OA in ball of foot. Can a bone spur cause friction with a nerve?
Definately: You may have anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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.See 1 more doctor answer
You see: A foot doctor for diagnosis / etiology and treatment possibilities.
Nerves: Most burning type of pain is caused by a nerve problem. Depending on the location of the pain on the bottom of the foot it may be caused by plantar fasciitis entrapping the nerve at the side & bottom of the heel. If at the level of the toes it could be a neuroma. If you are a diabetic it could be neuropathy. If it persists you need to see someone.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Burning pain can be caused by several conditions, including diabetes, sciatica and lumbar spine issues. Burning pain is nerve related and finding the cause will help with the treatment. If the pain constant and wakes you up at night it could be neuropathy. If it is intermittent and worse when standing or sitting for long periods, it may be from your back. See a neurologist for evaluation.
Bad shoes perhaps: Most likely your shoes could be compressing a sensory nerve near the ankle. Ah fashion! But you could also have a pinched nerve in your back (unlikely unless you have back pain radiating to your left side). Another possibility is peripheral neuropathy but you would probably have other areas of lower body numbness. See a podiatrist if this bothers you.See 1 more doctor answer
I'm having a burning sensation around the area of my foot that I broke and random sharp/dull pains. Is this normal? I broke it on April 8th.
I would let your: Physician/ podiatrist/ orthopedic surgeon know about your symptoms.
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). See a doctor to have all this sorted out for you.See 1 more doctor answer
Tolnaftate: A tolnaftate cream is still probably best for most athlete's foot, a diagnosis a lay person can make easily. I'd apply it to the sensitive area on your bottom as well and see what happens. Keep these places dry especially after you exercise. If you don't get a good result in a week, physician's office visit is in order.See 1 more doctor answer
Nerve: Could be irritation to the superficial nerves close to the skin surface.
Vul;vodynia: Not usually affecting the foot; however there may be a co-morbid disc problem that inflicts pain to the foot.
Further eval: Is needed like an xray to rule out a stress fracture for example.
Every time I walk and there a burning sensation up my side of my foot, what did I do, what to do?
Have it looked at: If the problem has persisted for two weeks you can get an emg-ncs study to see if a nerve has been pinched.
I have a burning sensation in my upper back and from a week I have this sensation in my right foot also.
