In brief: Teneder feet and imb

If teneder could be circulatory factor or neuropathic cfactor, also if imbalance could be more neuropathic cause, also may be ataxia or ms, needs more evaluation and h/o be sure not to drink heavily also check B12 and uric acid etc.

In brief: Neuropathy

Burning and poor balance are both neuropathy related.
See a doctor to help determine the cause of the neuropathy which there are many reasons why this could happen. If it is only on one side, strong possibility of a nerve compression somewhere. May stem from your back.
