Burning sensation on middle 3 toes

About 2 weeks ago I started feeling this mild burning sensation on the top of my left foot that centered around the middle 3 toes. I was driving at the time and thought that the heater was on or that I spilled something on it. I actually looked at my foot and then checked that the heater wasn't on (it wasn't). It was just a fleeting sensation lasting a few seconds and then went away. It wasn't until the next day that I felt it again on the left foot in the same spot, and I was driving again. So again I checked to make sure the heater wasn't on (and it wasn't).


Over the last 4-5 days it has increased in frequency (but not intensity) to multiple times in a day. It is not a painful burning but enough that it is noticable. And it can happen any time of day and in any situation (lying down, sitting, standing, walking). And it always last just a few seconds. I work with physical therapists and asked one about it the other day. He felt my foot and could not palpate a lump or neuroma. He suggested I try to avoid crossing my legs or sitting on my foot to see if maybe I was pinching off a nerve in my foot. But changing this has not changed the sensation.

I have no other complaints other than this burning. No numbness or tingling, no pain, no rashes, no lumps...everything else is fine. I will note that I just had laser vein surgery on my left leg 3 days ago but the burning sensation began at least a week before the surgery. And there have been no changes in my leg veins or pain (which was none) just prior to surgery that would possibly cause these symptoms. The burning was the same before as it is after.

I do run about 2-4 times per week and participate in Zumba dance classes 1x/week. I'm 30 years old and have had 1 child. I spend a mild-moderate amount of time on my feet and wear tennis shoes to work daily. I am otherwise healthy with a BMI of 25, low blood sugars (at least the last time I checked it), and good blood pressure (107/70 about 4-5 days ago). No major medical or health issues.

I have done some looking around online and have found many possible reasons why I may have this burning sensation. Various diagnoses, such as diabetic neuropathy, neuroma, and MS. I guess I just need to know, based on my symptoms, should I just wait it out a little longer and see if it gets better, or should I go to a doctor to get it looked at further. Seeing some of the potential causes has got me a little anxious that it may be something more serious.

Thanks,
Amanda

Hi Amanda,
Usually burning type pain in a confined area is not diabetic neuropathy and "may" be nothing more than a local nerve irritation. Probably not a neuroma because the pain is not on the ball of the foot.
You can wait a couple of weeks and see if it subsides, but if you are concerned about it, have a podiatrist take a look at it just to confirm that it is nothing serious.

Burning pain in toes
by: sue

For about 6 months, i have been awakened once or twice a week by an intense burning pain in the 3 middle toes of my right foot. It comes on suddenly - always when I'm sleeping - burns intensely for maybe 30 seconds, and then slowly goes away. These toes are now always very slightly sore,barely noticeable.It is definitely not a footwear problem - I wear only comfortable low-heeled shoes or go barefoot, and I make sure my shoes fit well. My feet are very healthy - no corns, calluses,blisters, etc. I am 77 years old and have osteoarthritis, possible fibromyalgia ( doctor not sure ).BUT - I take a blood thinner and a couple of blood pressure drugs. I have done a lot of research on these drugs and have discovered that I have several side effects from them. I am beginning to believe that this toe pain is another side effect. Any opinions?

Burning toe
by: Pamela

Hi
I have had back issues L5 si and have pt 3 x a week. I've had ingrown toe surgery 2 x and thought it was from that or dry callas toe. Seen 2 foot Dr's and a dermatologist who put me on steroid cream for 3 wks. Didn't help
I'm on celebrex and Tramadol for back pain. Does not help the burning toe. Foot Dr wants me to start Gabapentin 300mg as she thinks it's nerve?
Any ideas?
Thanks
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Assuming there are no contraindications for you to take Gabapentin, it seems like a reasonable idea.
With a history of lower back pain there certainly is the possibility that your your burning toe is the result of a radiculopathy.
I do not know how old you are or your medical history, but just make sure the circulation going into your toe is fine, have your doctor check, as sometimes a burning toe may be a result of poor circulation.

I had the same thing. It got worse and traveled up my left leg - I then realised it was an early sign of sciatica. I have learned to adjust my back and the pain disappeared in minutes.

I went to a doctor
by: Anonymous

Its nerve damage. Well not badly damaged but if you run a lot and are on your feet you put pressure that when relieved in anyway sends the wrong signals and your toes burn. No I did these exercises and they work arching my back helps moving my feet allowing pressure to be relived but somewhere from your lower back to your knees there is a pinched nerve and relieving it is the only way to get that feeling to go away.

Strangest thing I ever experienced
by: Anonymous

I started noticing a burning sensation to the toes on my right foot. The three middle toes. To barely touch them across the top feels as if I had placed them into a cigarette lighter. But unlike most that I read, when walking sometimes it feels as if all three toes were broken and being crushed together. Removing shoes helps a little but not much. It is very painful. Came out of the blue one day about a month ago. And just seems so weird. But the longer it goes on the more painful it becomes. I did have several back surgeries many years ago. But this is the most ridiculous thing that has ever happened to me. It just seems so strange that it would only effect three toes on a foot.

pain in toes

I have the same pain...except mine is confined to my second toe on my left foot. The pain is continuous and so intense I cannot sleep and have to take pain medication.
I have had had back surgery for nerve compression and herniate disc's at L5/S1. I think this is more problems from that area as I currently have other disc's bulging and spinal stenosis. Definitely, nerve damage.

Burning sensation.
by: AnonymoustERE

I, like everybody else have the same burning sensation on the top my two inner toes to the right of my big toe on my right leg. Burns pretty strong on the top of my toes, but not the underside. It isn't a throbbing pain at all, it is just this burning sensation and very bothersome. It doesn't bother while sleeping, but I usually feel it at the end of the day when I am finally resting. No idea what it could be. I am looking for help understanding this problem. I hope that I can remember to mention it to my Rheumatologist at the next appointment.

Me too
by: Betty

I have the same tingling/burning sensation on two toes of my left foot. Has been going on for two months or more. A few years ago I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy in both feet, but three years ago I had a severe case of shingles on the left side on my inner thigh. I'm wondering if it's nerve damage from that. Even though it's in a different place it's the same side as the shingles. I'm a healthy 65 year old female with better than normal bp and good sugar levels. I have high cholesterol, but is controlled very well with Crestor. Anyone else have this pain who has also had shingles (on the same side as the foot pain)? Just grasping for answers

Toes on Left Foot Burning
by: Anonymous

I had L5/S1, L4, L3, disc removal and fusion surgery 6 weeks ago. While I have been doing Physical Therapy 3 days a week and I have been healing perfectly, about eight days ago I noticed a burning sensation across the tips of my toes, the the tops of my toes, and the top of my left foot. My PT believes that it is the compression of my L5 nerve root due to the swelling I am experiencing from my PT work and just the normal healing process my muscles are going through. I will confirm this when I see my neurologist in 3 days as well as what he recommends as far as treatment.

Best answer I found on the web so far

I have a similar condition on my right foot. I know it is not caused by diabetes; however I do have problems with sciatica and have had some problems with a disc in my back so I am thinking it is nerve pain. Never been to a chiropractor but may be time to try one. This web page provided the best general info I found so far: http://foothealth.about.com/od/neuroma/a/Nerve-Problems-That-Cause-Foot-Pain.htm

The 3 Burning Toes
by: Anonymous

While taking a 5 hour drive today, my 3 inner toes on my right foot started to burn like hell on the top. I thought the heater was blowing on my shoe and heated up my toes. The burning was on for 3-4 minutes. Eventually, it got less and less. Still burns, though. I never had this happen before. I do think it is some type of nerve. I will wait to see if it goes away.

Exact same problem!

Hi, I have just recently been experiencing the exact same problem you describing.. Left foot, middle three toes and a burning sensation that lasts a few seconds at a time. Initially thought it was a once off thing but after experiencing it on and off for about two weeks now I googled it and came across this page. I wonder what it could be? And hope it's nothing serious. I have got a plantar fasciitis problem on the same left foot and wonder if it could in any way be related to that as well?

Burning around the toes.
by: Anonymous

In some cases not all it may be you have presure on a back nerve and it is pressing on a nerve that goes down your leg. It feels like burning but it's nerve tingling. Go to your doctor and check to see if you have a lower back problem. May be something small that a chiropractor can fix. Check your doctor first.

I have been feeling the burning sensation on the top of my three middle toes of my right leg and that is what prompted me to see if I could find out anything about it. I feel better knowing that it isn't just in my mind and others have experienced the same thing. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and recently got diagnosed with Chron's Disease. I have been wondering if it might be that the sensation has something to do with my arthritis. Will ask on my next appointment with my rheumatologist.

Intense burning in middle 3 toes
by: David

In the last 6 months, I have experienced intense burning in my RH middle 3 toes. This only happens when I have been wearing particular closed (but roomy) shoes for 5-6 hours and when I take them off, the burning continues for about 1 hour then goes away. Before going to a Podiatrist, I'm checking which of my shoes are causing this condition as it may be the lacing, internal seams, shape of the sole etc that may be pressing on a nerve. I've never had it with thongs or soft deck shoes so maybe I can home in on it and fix it myself by changing shoe types or give the information to a Podiatrist to assist.

Dear Dr. Mitnick, The orthotics arrived four days ago and I slipped them into my shoes immediately. I was skeptical as to the usefulness of the item, they really didn't look very exotic. I have to say though, after using them for just four days, I have experienced grand relief from my foot pain. Even the very first day, I was able to do a lot of work while on my feet with at least a 75% reduction of pain. It has only gotten better every day, and I go nowhere without my shoes with the orthotics. I had been experiencing extreme heel and sole pain for about six months and had to take extended breaks off my feet many times a day as well as regular doses of Ibuprofen. Since getting the orthotics, my life has returned to normal and I feel good again. Just wanted to say thanks for the recommendation for a very effective item, I had no idea what a change this item could affect.

Dr. Mitnick, Just want to say thank you so very much for your quick response and very informative reply! After reading what you had to say, I called the doctor's office and was able to get in and see him the same day as my injury. Toe was x-rayed and luckily, it is not broken or fractured. Very badly bruised and will probably lose the toe nail. And although my toe and toe nail are still very black and blue and very sore, they ARE both starting to feel a little better. So again, thank you! I am so very happy that I came across your website. The service you provide is outstanding and immeasurable!

Again, I really appreciate that you responded to my inquiry, and that your mention of Parkinson's helped me to find my way to a diagnosis of this difficult to diagnose disease. Most patients see on average 16 doctors before they are diagnosed. I hope that you can help other people that ask for your expertise in the future.
