Having the uncomfortable feeling that your feet are burning can be caused by many different factors. One of the most common, unfortunately, is due to peripheral nerve damage related to diabetes. Having uncontrolled high blood sugar can lead to numbness, tingling, and burning sensations that often show up first in the feet and hands. Other possible causes are chemical burns and fungal foot infections, so be sure to see your foot doctor for the proper care.
Since determining the precise cause of your burning foot problem may require specific tests, make an appointment to see your foot doctor for a physical foot exam, nerve conduction studies, bodily fluid analyses, and electromyography.
