MANY things.

Generally when someone describes their pain the way you did, it's some type of nerve irritation. A small nerve may be running over a bony prominence and be irritated by your shoe gear, or may be caught up in other tissue. See a podiatrist for a more detailed exam and diagnosis. Treatment MAY be very simple!

What causes the bottom of ur feet to burn and tingle w/pain? Also the tips of my toes are red and have stabbing pain,wat is this?PLZ HELP!!!!

Burning can be cause

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Burning sensation could be caused by nerve stimulation or neuropathy. Commonly occurs with diabetes or lower back problems. Sometimes it may be due to circulation problems. I would see your foot doctor for evaluation.

I have a pain on the tip of my big toe and it's so tender. What does this sound like?

Big toe pain

Pain
This sounds like a enchondroma. this is a bump of bone and they can grow under the nail and hurt with any pressure at all. An ingrown toe nail can hurt at the tip of the toe but you would be able to see this yourself. Your podiatrist can help you with this.

I have a have a sharp needle like pain on the tip of my big toe. i went to the doctor and he used a silver nitrate stick on it. it still hurts.

Toe pain

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
Do you have anything else other than the pain? It is not clear from your post as to why silver nitrate was used. It's not used for pain. You do need an exam of your toe because without it, it's essentially impossible to arrive to a correct diagnosis.

When I jump even the smallest height, and I'm about to land, this wave of pain flows from the tips of my toes then throughout my foot. What's wrong?

Possible back/Foot

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
It's possible that your getting referee pain from a back condition or that you have developed a benign nerve tumor called a Morton's Neuroma(google back pain and parasthesias and m.neuroma ). Also, assuming you don't have Dis eyes or rare taking certain meds, these also might be an unlikely cause. Lastly, certain growth plate conditions can cause these symptoms in your age group. See a Neurologist

I have a sharp pain on the tip of my big toe. went to podiatrists and he cauterized it. said may be overgrown skin. it has been 5 days and still hurts?

Granuloma Pyogrnicum

Skin
Sounds like you may not have the complete picture. Exuberant granulation is caused by chronic foreign body tissue reaction whereby chemotaxis of inflammatory infiltrate and leukocyte cells macrophages etc cause angioneogenesis in an attempt to encircle an ingrowing nail or thorn or other material. This in turns forms excess tissue growth which may in turn epithelialize when rejected foreign body

Dr. Eric R. Tepper answered:

I have pain in the base and a sharp pain at the tip of the second toe. The pain has moved to the base of the third and fourth toe. I did not have any injury. It feels like its swollen,but is not. It feels like a wrinkle. What should I do?

Possible neuroma

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
The symptoms you describe are consistent with a neuroma, which is a benign nerve tumor affecting the nerves going to the toes. The pain is worse while walking barefoot on a hard surface or when enclosed in shoes. Steroid injections and/or surgery are the treatments available.

I have pain on top of foot from toes to ankle. Very painful. Goin on 3 weeks. What could b wrong?

Many variables

Ankle_pain
You did not mention trauma. Are your ankle or foot joints hot? Are they swollen? Any new activities? My first thoughts would include some form of nerve entrapment, paresthesia, or arthritis. Arthritis can run the gamut from gout, calcium pyrophosphate deposition, degenerative, rheumatoid or lupus. Of course, nothing can take the place of a thorough exam and appropriate blood work.

Why do I get pain in the tip of my right finger .very painful ..it makes my hold hand n arm hurts . ?

Hard to say

Fingers
There are many possibilities, and usually a detailed exam and appropriate studies can determine the cause. Possible causes can include a local problem in the finger itself verses a neurological problem such as carpal tunnel syndrome, to even a pinched nerve in the neck. Consider being seen.
