Our expert says:
It is difficult to make a correct diagnosis if you haven't seen or exemined the patient and foot.
If you don't suffer from any medical condition and the pain/ discomfort/ burning is activity related, I would say that it's muscular/ soft tissue in origin. Shoewear and weight would play a very important role. I would suggest that you consult with a podiatrist that could assess and diagnose your condition and suggest the correct treatment. Take your shoes with when you cosnult with them. In the meantime, make sure that you wear very cushioning comfortable shoes all the time and don't walk around barefeet.
