I have tingling and burning sensation in my left foot which makes walking very painful.i have also something like corn (sorry forgot its name.it starts with a c probaly callus)in the same foot but my chiropodist said the burning s free.sensation is not caused by this.she thought it was related to some nerves or bones and suggested to have an x ray through my GP.However my Gp thinks this sensation is caused by muscles and bones inflamation and has prescribed me Naproxen 500mg .I have been taking it for last two days but it hasn't reduced the burning sensation though pain is little bit less.i dont have any serious illnesses and am 64 years oldMy GP wants me to continue with Naproxen for two eweeks and if my pain doesnt get better he would give me an injection.i dont think its going to cure the burning and tingling sensation?do you think its related to callus in my foot which is not fully developed yet.do i need an xray of the foot?Please advise.i hope this advice is free.thanks.

Sorry to bother you again. I would like to know what you meant by conservative treatment ?Do you mean wearing a proper insole and shoes?My chiropodist thought i needed that but gp has given only Naproxen.Would it help in curing burning sensation?do you think my pain would go after having an injection as my gp said.do you thin he is right to think its bone and muscles related? why didnt he think of my burning and tingling sensation?he is an experienced doctor but not in this field?Do i need any operation in that foot?
