Burning feeling under foot, how to reduce ?

I have a burning pain on the bottom of my foot right near my arch . I was injured playing soccer a few months ago and had posterior tibial tendonitis and an ankle sprain . The tendonitis has healed but I resprained my ankled a week ago. The burning feeling on the bottom of my foot I have only recently felt for the past couple of weeks. It occured randomly and lasted for a few minutes to a few hours, some days I never even feel it. But starting today I have felt it every time I loaded my foot by walking or standing. Sitting for a while seemed to reduce the burning sensation. I have tried to stretch my calf and achilles tendon but don t feel much help.

Hi,
It may be due to tibial tedonitis and ankle sprain which might have affected the passing nerves might give irritation of nerves causing burning sensation.
Now due to injury on the ankle there may be adhesion in surrounding tissues so there is more irritations causing burning.
Do physiotherapy and take some B compex or B1,B6,B12 tablets or injections.

I fell and broke my right ankle in May, 2011, resulting in a six inch plate in that leg. I also had a severe sprain in my left leg. My left leg still is discolored from the ankle to the knee and the pain is increasing in my knee like it has been jammed. It hurts on the front/top of my left knee. Any suggestions? (I am 57 years old)

Hi, I rolled my right ankle about 4 weeks ago. After about 2-3 weeks of rest and icing my right ankle, it felt pretty good. Good enough to start jogging again. I could walk and jog with no pain. On the forth week I tried to get back into soccer. Before the game I laced up my shoes and ankle brace then stood straight up to go for a jog. Immediately when I stood up I noticed a sharp ripping pain, across the bottom of my shin maybe near the top of the extensor tendons (if that s the right name for it, the tendon attached to the tibia), moving from the outside to the inside of my foot. I tried loosening the ankle brace but still the ripping pain continued when I stood up. I completely loosened the ankle brace and the ripping pain left and I could jog again. I decided not to play and started to examine the pain. The ripping pain only occurs when I over-extend my right leg or when I am standing/extending my leg and touch/grab my lower shin/upper ankle area. I had an X-Ray done on my lower leg/ankle but I haven t heard back from the doctor so I figured there wasn t any issues with my bones or ligaments. That leads me to believe it is a partial tear(s) in the muscle or tendon. Could you please give me a general idea if I need to have it surgically repaired or will I be able to continue resting and wait it out and eventually it will heal properly all on its own? Thanks Adam Cyr

Ankle sprain . 5 days ago. Inversion type. Swelling still present. Presently elevating and using boot. Presently using ibuprofen . Swelling is diminishing. I used ice only the first day. Would the use of ice be of help 5 days later?
