What would cause a burning sensation on the bottom of my foot?

What would cause a burning sensation on the bottom of my foot?

Nerves: Most burning type of pain is caused by a nerve problem. Depending on the location of the pain on the bottom of the foot it may be caused by plantar fasciitis entrapping the nerve at the side & bottom of the heel. 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.

Burning sensation on outside of the top of my left foot. What could have caused this?

Bad shoes perhaps: Most likely your shoes could be compressing a sensory nerve near the ankle. Ah fashion! But you could also have a pinched nerve in your back (unlikely unless you have back pain radiating to your left side). Another possibility is peripheral neuropathy but you would probably have other areas of lower body numbness. See a podiatrist if this bothers you.

Can a kidney stone cause burning sensation in foot?

Can a kidney stone cause burning sensation in foot?

Unlikely: Kidney stones if obstructing the outflow (ureter) can cause pain elsewhere in the back, chest, pelvis, testicles in men, but it would be most unlikely to have burning in your foot from the stones. Do you have nausea and vomiting? Any other pain or fever?

Burning sensation in top of right foot by all toes lasts for 10 sec comes &goes. Told docror. Not concerned. Not diabetic. What would cause this?

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.

Plan: It's impossible to give you professional answer not seeing your feet. You need to see podiatrist or your primary doctor to discuss this problems. Better to have picture of "redness " of your feet and exact time and activity prior these symptoms. Prepare yourself for appointment. Please.

I have one kidney, for the last couple of months I have been struggling with my feet. Any pressure causes a burning sensation. Even a blanket, shoes.

Multiple things: With a single kidney, pain and fever, see your doctor. However, specifically to your feet, you have to worry about things like diabetic neuropathy which is most concerning because it can cause problems with your kidney as well. Have you ever had gout? You may be having issues with protein loud and uric acid build up leading to gout. Either way, I would recommend seeing a physician to diagnose.

Neuroma: Burning in the ball of the foot is indicative of a neuroma, inflamed nerve from irritation from tight and narrow shoes or trauma to forefoot. Treatment usually is reducing the swelling in the nerve: ice, elevating the foot, Motrin or even a steroid injection into the swollen nerve in the foot. An x-ray can be taken to rule out stress fracture. Burning can also be neuropathy if you have diabetes.
