Re: Burning of bottom of feet

I've got the burning in both feet also from the arch to the balls of my feet. My podiatrist said that the nerve which runs through the plantar faciitis is irritated due to the fascia being tight/stretched. He recommended stretching my calves, etc., plus the custom orthotics but I still have it.

When I wake up my feet aren't burning unless I've overdone it the day before. The thing that works the best for me is to get off my feet before the burning starts, take a rest, and then walk again. I also use ice since I can't take antiinflammatory meds.

I couldn't imagine jogging/running with feet that are burning that would be agony. If it is a nerve condition the pounding of your feet hitting the pavement would surely irritate it.
