Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Burning sensation in the foot is due to the local nerve problem.
Excessive walking, or standing can cause pressure on the nerves supplying the foot.
Also ill fitted footwear can be a problem.
Lower spine problem like arthritis or herniated disc can cause foot problem as well.
Other possibilities include vitamin B12 deficiency, diabetes, thyroid disorder.
A neurologist should be consulted with.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
