Severe burning pain in balls of both feet. Can't walk due to the pain - it is worse when walking. There is also some swelling. What could be some causes?

Thank you for contacting us. IPFH does not diagnose or make treatment recommendations on line. Because you describe your pain as severe, and because it is impacting your ability to walk, we would recommend that you consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional at your earliest opportunity. He or she can help determine what is causing the pain, and recommend treatments to deal with it. You can use our foot pain self-assessment tool to help you identify some possible causes of the pain, but please understand that this is not a diagnostic tool, nor is it a substitute for a consultation with a medical professional. We hope that you will be able to see a medical professional for a diagnosis and proper treatment, and that you will soon be free of this pain.
