There can be reasons. One is infection under the nail causing abscess putting pressure and causing pain and second one is nerve related. I would recommend you to apply capsaicin cream over the area and take ibuprofen tablet for pain and get your nail examined by a doctor for exact diagnosis. It is better to seek expert help at this stage as you have been suffering for 3 months so detailed examined and evaluation should be done.

Hope this helps.

This problem bothers me the most when I elevate my legs in a recliner or when I get into bed at night and elevate my feet again... burns for a couple of hours. Why?
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

This seems to be related to nerve as it can get compressed in certain position so increasing your symptoms. A thorough examination is needed for this.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
