Pain, burning sensation in foot. While walking. Then subsides. Thoughts?

I walk alot and have been experiencing pain in my left foot from my big toe joint to almost my ankle, on the top of my foot, I sometimes have to loosen my shoe to relieve it. It has been bothering me for about 2 weeks. It burns more than hurts and that occurs after I start walking. After a time it subsides and is not as intense. It doesn't hurt enough to stop me from walking, but it is uncomfortable and is getting more worrisome. Any thoughts?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain and burning of the foot and ankle could be related to paresthesias or a mild inflammation in the area like arthritis. Most of the times this subsides on taking a mild pain killer, rest and doing a hot fomentation in the area.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
