Burning Feet Syndrome
A person who is experiencing a burning sensation in their feet may have nerve damage in their legs (also know as neuropathy). Diabetes is the most common cause of burning pain in feet, but there are other possible causes as well. A person’s occupation or profession can also be the culprit for a bottom of feet burning sensation. Letter carriers, police officers, warehouse workers, teachers and anyone else on their feet for long periods of time could cause the problem.
Burning pain in feet, or the feeling of “pins and needles” is most often limited to the soles, but the pain sensation can extend up into the lower legs or ankles.
