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.

Varies: There is a nerve on the tip of the foot that supplies that area and is superficial, it is possible that you are developing a neuroma there. I would make sure you are not wearing any shoe wear that could be irritating the top of the foot. There are other potential causes as well. Don't hesitate to see a podiatrist or orthopedist for it. ...Read more

Varies: There are a number of potential causes and I would not hesitate to be seen for a specific diagnosis. Presumably you did not injure it? In that scenario infection, inflammation, or if you are real active possibly a stress fracture are among the more common things we see. A detailed exam would go a long way in making the diagnosis. ...Read more

Nerve irritation: This sounds like an irritation of the L5 nerve root or distal peroneal nerve. Check back with your surgeon. Re-imaging with MRI or myelogram, or electrophysiological workup (EMG) may be helpful to pinpoint the problem. They may start you on Neurontin or Lyrica (pregabalin) medication which reduces nerve pain. Short course of steroids (cortisone) may help but will slow down your fusion. ...Read more

Possibly: Possibly from the strap or tightness from the heels and more likely from walking at fast pace at work too. The swelling from your feet can press against the straps in your heels to impingement sensation at the superficial nerves on your foot. Not sure how burning traveled benefit your legs to calves and then to the front again of your knees. ...Read more

What are some stretches for sciatica? Also pain on top of foot that has sciatica. Burning pain. If i put my foot in bathtub full of cold water help?

Core Exercises: Typically core strengthening exercises are the best to help relieve pressure and forces in the spine. I would try and google some or look them up on youtube to see descriptions. If you can do them yourself, wonderful otherwise ask your doctor to get a referral to a good physical therapist for further assistance. You could try putting foot in cold water, likely it may help a little but not much. ...Read more
