Thanks for writing in.
There can be many causes of foot pain.
1. Plantar fascitis due to degeneration of the ligaments of the foot.
2. Vitamin deficiency can lead to burning legs and neuritic pain.
3. Osteoarthritis of the upper joints like knee or hip can cause abnormal force transmission and pain and degeneration.
4.Peripheral neuritis due to diabetes.
5. Rarely varicose ulcers.

To be able to help you better, I would like to know the following:
a. Are you vegetarian?
b. Is the pain worse in the morning? Does it become worse with walking?
c. Are you diabetic? Have you been screened for the same?

Awaiting your reply.
With regards
