My husband's feet, 57 years old, mostly his toes and heels burn and experience pain even shooting pains. We have checked his blood sugar and it is normal
Thanks for contacting HCM
If blood sugar is normal then it may be due the tarsal tunnel syndrome.Patients with TTS typically complain of numbness in the foot radiating to the big toe and the first 3 toes, pain, burning, electrical sensations, and tingling over the base of the foot and the heel. Thanks Dr Hariom Sharma
I keep having a sudden burst of pain in the back of my foot, it's right above the heel. It's always spontaneous, and when it's in a resting position as well.
It would be best to rule out Plantar fasciitis.Soaking the feet in warm water before retiring will help.Use of analgesics like ibubrufen will also help.Selection of proper footwear/shoes with support for the arches is essential.Standing for long hours and walking on hard surfaces should be avoided.Silicone insoles inserted in the shoes will help.
