Yeah the last couple days the heel bone of my foot has been like burning off and on. It is not the outside of my foot at all, it is inside and my foot has no fungus or infection or anything on the outside. It looks completely healthy. But it's like the bone feels like it is burning? Anyone else have this happen? The only time I felt a burning sensation like this was when I had a fracture but that was cuz the doctor put this tuning fork thing to it while vibrating and that made my foot burn and we found I had a fracture. So I dunno.
The pain is in the wrong place for a Morton's neuroma.... that presents wiht pain between the metatarsals, up near the ball of the foot. I have treated that a few times. If it's still happening it's time to see your doc.

That burning is nerve pain. It may be caused by inflammation putting pressure on a nerve, nerve injury/damage, damage or bruising of the periosteum (covering) of the bone, stress fracture, or some other pathology... I couldn't even begin to nail it down with out physically examining your foot. Best treatment is RICE... Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation. NSAIDS such as Advil/ibuprofen can be helpful as well. If it continues past a few days after RICE you should see your doc!!
