Symptomatic: If you don't have gout or active arthritis, then quite likely you have nerve pain. For that, you can try several things: such as liniments, Lidoderm patches, or anticonvulsants--which are good for chronic nerve pain.

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.

Burning sensation inside my left foot for long?

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?

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.

What would cause a burning sensation on the bottom of my foot?

What would cause a burning sensation on the bottom of my foot?

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.

Can you advise me if having burning sensation in foot its a problem?

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.

Burning sensation on outside of the top of my left foot. What could have caused this?

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.

Burning sensation in right arch of the 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). See a doctor to have all this sorted out for you.

I have athletes foot and burning sensation under my scrotum?

I have athletes foot and burning sensation under my scrotum?

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.

I have a burning sensation in my upper back and from a week I have this sensation in my right foot also.

Need more info: There may be something that is causing nerve irritation. That could be caused by improper posture, trauma (tight shoe?) jogging or running, lifting something heavy. The complaint is so diffuse that I would suggest that you make an appt with your primary care physician.
