Over the last 6 weeks I have been experiencing severe burning on the ball of each foot. I walk for at least 45 mins daily. I have purchased new good quality sneakers - correctly fitted by experienced shoe sales person. The sneakers also have a good quality gel insole fitted. I have tried soaking my feet in a foot bath daily & applying a soothing cream but nothing seems to make any difference. Would appreciate suggestions on what the problem might be or if anyone has had this experience. I have walked for many years, but it is only in the last few weeks that this problem has arisen.
hello, burning pain can be a sign of RSD. do you also have swelling, and is it sensitive to touch? If so you might want to see a doctor. I had some burning pain after a surgery and my doctor told me it was because of the nerves. hope this helps.

Thanks NLJ1119. Can you tell me what RSD is? There is some swelling & sensitivity which lessens if I rest for several hours with my feet up. Don't have time to do this every day unfortunately. However, I will visit the doctor & have it checked out - but would still like to know what RSD is. Many thanks.
Thank you for the suggestion rush-rulz. I don't believe I have callouses - but I intend to check this out with my physician. At the moment I am exploring gluten insensitivity & wonder if this condition has anything to do with all the aches & pains which are increasing. Watch this space!
