Burning pain in bottom of feet
by Sandra Hardin
On Jan 14, 2015, I was getting into the back seat of the car. The car began rolling, stretching my legs apart like the splits. The next day, I was walking up and down a lot of steps looking at Motor Homes. At around 2 that day both feet began to have pain in the balls of both feet.
I have seen many doctors, had x-rays of both feet, showed nothing broken.
The Foot Doctor just by listening where the pain is said it was Metatarsalgia. I agree that the bones were injured, however, but they seem to have healed. I had an MRI Of the Lumbar and it showed bulging disk at L2-L3, after a year and 3 months I have constant burning on bottom of feet unless I am laying down. Walking is very painful.
The only other pain I have is both big toes have pain when I bend them. Most doctors I have saw agree the pain is coming from my spine. I have been going to Therapy for several months. Do you have any suggestions on what I should do.
Obviously since I haven't had the opportunity to examine you, I am unable to be certain about this, so you consider what follows in that light.
I have a pretty strong feeling that the bulge seen at L2-L3 is what is known as an "incidental finding". True, but irrelevant. That level doesn't supply the bottom of the feet.
I think your Foot Doctor is probably spot on. This sounds very like metatarsalgia; more usually it affects the second and third metatarsals but in your case probably the great toes.
Diabetes and a peripheral neuralgia should be considered too.
Look for a chiropractor who specialises in treating feet.
