In brief: Pain, burning

Tarsal tunnel syndrome is an injury or compression of the posterior tibial nerve.
This runs behind the inside ankle bone into the foot at the level of the heel bone. Most symptoms will be pain and burning from the level of the ankle to the bottom of the foot depending on which nerve branches are involved.
