Nerves: Most burning type of pain is caused by a nerve problem.

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.

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.

My husband, 41 has a burning sensation on the bottom of his feet. What causes the burning? He saids " it feels like he's walking on fire"

Feet: Different things can be reason for that. Commonly could be due to Neuropathy-nerve problems which could be due to diabetes, nerves problems at the back. Also could be due to arthritis in the feet. Another possibility could be due to nerves damage/injury at the feet, to rule out any lumps on the feet. Better to see podiatris for detailed exam.

Nerve stimulation: You are possibly getting this sensation from stimulating the nerves in your sacral plexus. They line the back of your posterior pelvis/sacrum. See a neurologist for eval especially if becomes worse.

The bottoms of my feet have been experiencing a burning sensation when pressure is on them, especially when wearing shoes. Is there something wrong?

The bottoms of my feet have been experiencing a burning sensation when pressure is on them, especially when wearing shoes. Is there something wrong?

Need to see your Dr.: Wearing shoes should not cause burning sensation to occur! You need to discuss this with your pediatrician to make sure it's not something serious. Neuropathic foot pain is unusual in your age group.. You can always get a second opinion from a podiatrist. Try using orthotics or arch supports now to decompress your arches that will also support your legs & back too! Start feeling better soon!

I have a sore and burning sensation on the bottom of my feet in the metatarsal areas. I can walk well on carpet, but not so well on hard surfaces.

Metatarsalagia: Several factors may cause metatarsalagia. As we age the plantar fat pad beneath the metatarsals begin to thin and atrophy. Try gel insoles in your shoes... There is no treatment available other than comfort.,

Nerve pain: It sounds like a nerve problem. It still may be a pinched nerve in the lower back. Could be inflamed. You are a little young to get neuropathy, but that could be one of the possible diagnosis. May need to see a neurologist.

Had surgery on foot about 8 days ago for a avm foot is hurting throbbing burning pain on cut and bottom of foot also clear fluid is coming out of cut?

Had surgery on foot about 8 days ago for a avm foot is hurting throbbing burning pain on cut and bottom of foot also clear fluid is coming out of cut?

See your surgeon: It is possible that you have not been elevating the foot as I suspect you were instructed--this can cause throbbing pain. But because this could also be associated with a post-operative infection, you should see your surgeon immediately so he/she can accurately evaluate the situation.

I have a burning sensation with what looks like a rash on my bottom legs a little above my ankle below my calfs please what is this? And it go

Rash: Your rash may be a skin infection (possibly fungal or bacterial) or may be a dermatitis (inflammation of the skin secondary to an irritant). Often, changing a clothing detergent or coming into contact with an irritant can cause severe itching, burning, and the appearance of a rash. Fungal infections and some bacterial infections look similar. Try topical cortisone. IF not better, see dr.

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.
