The burning pain on the soles of your feet, can be due to peripheral neuropathic disease. This condition affects the nerve endings and is characterised by a chronic burning sensation. You will have to consult a doctor for an examination and blood tests, to determine the cause. Ccnditions like diabetes, severe Vitamin B deficiencies or hypothyroidism can be possible causes.
