Numbness in sole & hot pain in feet. Neuroma?

Maybe something else. Neuromas are impingements of the interdigital nerves, and usually cause pain and symptoms and pain in the balls of the feet and toes usually. If a larger area of the foot is involved, it could be tarsal tunnel- a nerve impingment at the ankle. See a podiatrist, as he/she can diagnose this, and help to rule out possible medical reasons for it (like in neuropathy).
Possibly. Your pain may be due to compression of the intermetatatarsal nerve or from possible neuropathy or other metabolic or mechanical condition...Should be checked out by a podiatrist, neurologist, or family doc for a more accurate diagnosis.
