I try using a pillow to raise the back of my sore heel but it still doesn't stop the burning pain. I wonder if Achilles tendon is involved. Walk OK.

I try using a pillow to raise the back of my sore heel but it still doesn't stop the burning pain.  I  wonder if Achilles tendon is involved. Walk OK.

Good question: Achilles tendonopathy tends to produce an enlarged, tender tendon (particularly sore when squeezed). Also, small nerve branches supplying the heel can become irritated to cause a burning pain. One question: why are you taking clonazepam? Underlying disorder? See your doctor for exam. Details of the physical should help diagnosis, and this will help treatment. ...Read more

Achilles heel has a painful and burning sensation when i walk. It comes and goes, it's been going on for about 5months. Why is this happening?Explain!

Injury: I am a runner and had a similar problem for a length of time. You might have to incorporate some type of stretching. I would possibly first see a dr. And find out if the tendon is just strained or torn. Then, you might need some type of physical therapy, icing, heat, or even possibly ultrasound therapy. But need to be checked first! ...Read more

Burning stinging pain by achilles tendon,i had a rupture in my other achilles last year?

Burning stinging pain by achilles tendon,i had a rupture in my other achilles last year?

Achilles: Achilles' tendon injuries and ruptures can be caused by trauma such as aggressive jumping but also can become weakened by taking certain antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin or levofloxacin. Both of these medications belong to the "quinilone" family of drugs. Either way, that needs to be evaluated by a medical professional and may even need an MRI. ...Read more

I'm having a burning sensation in the tendons located behind my knee. It hurts when i stand and feel as if they will cramp up.

See your pcp: 'burning' pain in the popliteal fossa( behind the knee) and when u stand up sounds like you've irritated your hamstrings.Possibly u strained them somehow w/o knowing about it. Also, popliteal cysts can cause this pain as well.These are seen commonly w/ knee problems like a cartilage tear. See your pcp and possibly referral to orthopedic surgeon. Best of luck! ...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

Having burning sensation on my fingers since last 2 days. What would be the efficient treatment I can do?

Burning fingers?: How did this happen? Were you cooking with habanero peppers without gloving your hands. I love them too but the capsaicin in them is really intense. Burning is neurological. Is it coming from outside or inside? If from outside get "Goop" at an auto store. It looks like cold cream but it's great at removing heavy chain organic compounds. If it's from inside that's another story. See a neurologist. ...Read more
