What Causes the Sensation of Burning Feet?

Sensation of Burning Feet

The unpleasant sensation that your feet are burning can range from minor discomfort to severe pain that wakes you up in the middle of the night. A wide variety of conditions can cause the feeling of burning feet while also causing numbness or a pins-and-needles sensation.

Having poor blood flow to the legs and feet due to artery or vein disease can create the sensation of burning feet. The sensation of burning feet could also be from a skin condition or just from plain old ordinary fatigue that causes your feet to become stressed and inflamed.

Since the actual causes of burning feet are so varied, it can be quite difficult to get an accurate diagnosis. Your foot doctor has extensive experience in tracing the source of a burning foot problem.

Some of the causes and contributing factors to the sensation of burning feet include the following:

●      Nerve constriction

●      Athlete’s foot

●      Capsulitis

●      Kidney issues

●      Tarsal tunnel syndrome

●      Vitamin and mineral depletion

●      Hypothyroidism

●      Diabetes

●      Neuropathy and neuromas

●      HIV infection

●      Toxic chemicals

●      Lyme disease

●      Chemotherapy
