Few things: Could cause this. First, i would examine the skin to see if there is any sign of cracked skin, blistering or scaling as a fissure or athletes foot may be present. If not, i would question you with regards to low back pain or if you are possibly diabetic. I would also evaluate you for compression neuropathy of the deep peroneal nerve or tarsal tunnel syndrome. ...Read more

A couple of things: There are a couple of small bones under the bone at the base of the big toe called sesamoids. These can become inflammed or cracked. Or you might have pinched a nerve in the ball of your foot. See a podiatrist for examination and x-rays. ...Read more

I have a burning sensation in my right big toe because i had an gout attack . What can I do about the burning sensation?

Dr. Joseph Newman

Hang in there: Gout can be a very painful condition to suffer with. As the gout attach subsides, so do the redness, swelling and pain. In the meantime take it easy and rest the foot where possible. Avoid tight fitting shoes. Take any prescribed medications, and talk to your doctor about options for pain relief. Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more

My left little toe and my right big toe as a sharp burning sensation when stretching to the side and is clicking when pressing on top of little toe.

Burning sensation: Can be a sign of neuropathy, otherwise these toes on different feet are not related. Clicking, can be gas expelling from a joint or a tendon snapping on a piece of bone or out of a groove. You should see a foot doc and have it checked out. ...Read more

Feel a tendon or something moving side to side in base of big toe. Pain and sometimes burning sensation when walking was after slamming side of foot?

Walk this Way.: There are quite a few structures that have the ability to move side to side, associated with the base of the big toe. A slamming injury could injure any one or more of them effecting the stability of the toe and toe joint. Pain and burning are the body's way of letting you know this. It is best to have the toe examined and possibly x-rayed to remove all doubt. ...Read more
