I agree with Coach Nancy. I am an athletic trainer and I work in a physical therapy clinic. It does sound like a neuroma, so you should definitely see your doctor. Does it get worse when you are wearing shoes, especially tight ones? That's another sign.

A burning sensation usually means there is some type of nerve involvement...where you are talking about (keep in mind I am not a doc, so you will need to talk with a doctor about this) is a condition called Morton's neuroma.(see link below). Know that this is not a diagnosis, just a possibility, but please talk with your doctor as he/she may give you a different diagnosis and treatment plan.
I want to say this is a vitamin deficiency.. probably one of the B's. I'll poke around some of my old books to see if I can find it again and get back to you. I know this is painful but it'll pass and you'll get it be back to normal soon.
I need assistance to find out why the bottoms of my feet feel like they are on fire intermittently. It usually starts near the balls of one or the other foot or BOTH This will occur when just working around the house or on the home stationary bike (usually NOT in spin class). Help, I have not gone to the doc but would like to know what it is. I can barely walk or run when this happens. I end up stopping, or walking on the sides of my feet. What is this? Anyone? Any help?
